Geneviève Dussault’s career has unfolded at the intersection of music and movement. She has explored the dialogue between these disciplines in fields as diverse as early dance, contemporary dance, university teaching, and research.
Geneviève was a lecturer in the Dance Department of the Université du Québec à Montréal for 38 years. She taught movement analysis, expressive movement, body rhythm, and dance history. Her career at UQAM was honored with an award for excellence in teaching in 2016 and an award for excellence in research creation in 2020. She holds a Master’s degree in dance from York University in Toronto (1991) and a certification in movement analysis from the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies (1996). Since 2011, she has been collaborating with Professor Nicole Harbonnier on research projects focusing on the complementarity of the functional and expressive aspects of movement, while developing a new conceptual proposal for the observation-analysis of movement (OAM).
As a performer, she sings with the Chœur du Plateau under the direction of Roseline Blain and has participated in Sarah Dell’Ava’s intergenerational creative projects since 2013 (Oriri, Ori, O2, and O). Geneviève has been teaching dance at CAMMAC for over 30 years.
