A History of the Osez! Project
Initiated in 2002, the Osez! project was developed by Choreographer Karine Ledoyen and presented by Danse K par K until 2005. With a run of nine years on the docks of Québec and Europe, its immense popular success brought together 300 artists and was seen by 14,000 spectators from around the world. This project has had a significant impact on the development and popularization of dance in Québec.

From 2002 to 2010

Osez! is presented every summer on a dock or close to water. Choreographer Karine Ledoyen invites a musician and between sixteen and twenty-five dancers (according to the edition) who in the same day must create a new choreographic draft together. A minimum of 20 minutes of their creation is presented the same evening for a public on a dock at sunset. The process is repeated for five consecutive days on the same dock.

Night after night, spectators can watch the choreographic essay Osez! evolve.

Return of the Osez! Project


The return of the project Dare! since 2017

The Council of Culture’s dance table, as part of the festivities surrounding the opening of the House for Dance, announces the holding of a major event rallying many players in the contemporary dance community of Quebec City . Aimed at the general public and produced and directed by the dance table, Dare! inaugurated the new spaces of the House for Dance under the curatorship of choreographer Karine Ledoyen.

It is with great pleasure that the event is again renewed for 2019.

Spread over three days and using local talent, the original production will bring together two choreographers, a group of forty dancers and two musicians. The dancers, in collaboration with the choreographer, will present two 30-minute shows in front of the public each evening.
