Lock, Édouard

La La La Human Steps Founder, Artistic Director and Choreographer Édouard Lock began his choreographic career at the age of 20, creating works from 1974 to 1979 for a variety of Canadian dance companies and institutions, including Groupe Nouvelle Aire, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal. In 1980 he founded La La La Human Steps, a company that has garnered strong national and international recognition and that celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2006. Over the years Mr. Lock has been invited to create works for some of the world's leading dance companies, including the Ballet de l'Opéra de Paris, the Nederlands Dans Theater and Het Nationale Ballet of Holland. His works have garnered many awards, including Canada's most important choreographic award. Mr. Lock co-conceived and was Artistic Director for David Bowie's world tour, "Sound and Vision", in 1990. He also collaborated with Frank Zappa on "the Yellow Shark concert" -an occasion that marked Mr. Zappa's final performances-alongside Germany's Ensemble Modern, Frankfurt's Alte Oper, the Berlin Philharmonic and Vienna's KonzertHaus. Since "Human Sex" in 1985, which catapulted La La La Human Steps to the forefront of the international dance scene, the troupe has performed shows - "New Demons" (1987), "Infante, c'est destroy" (1991), 2 (1995), "Exaucé/Salt" (1998), "Amelia" (2002) and "Amjad" (2007) -on international tours, two years for each creation, in the major capitals of Europe, Asia and America. Edouard Lock created "The Seasons" (2014) for the Sao Paulo Dance Company, revisiting Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The company has been dissolved in 2015.

Hébert, Bernar

Bernar Hébert is an accomplished director/producer, well respected in the filmmaking industry. In Montreal, he is known as the go-to filmmaker for any project involving arts. For the last 30 years, through his films and television projects, he has explored almost all artistic mediums, from dance to music or contemporary art. Hébert has managed to create a vast range of innovative creations and documentaries.

In 1991, he became an International EMMY award-winning director with Pictures at an Exhibition, a dance/musical film where he succeeded in creating a singular visual universe by combining talents from different artistic disciplines (conductor Charles Édouard Dutoit, dance group MOMIX, and Montreal’s Symphonic Orchestra).

Arts and culture have often been his main inspiration. Hébert was behind The Art of Nude Modeling. This triptych miniseries focused on nude modeling while following the artistic collaboration of the creators who work with them. In 2009 he directed and produced The Body as an Offering. Following the work of international image makers, this documentary is an exploration of different depictions of the human body, far from the standards of beauty conveyed by society. Throughout the film, the audience was able to witness the fascinating creative process of contemporary photographers.

Les Contemporains is Hébert’s most recent accomplishment. This series marks the 50th anniversary of the Musée d’art contemporain of Montréal: a seven-episode documentary series broadcasted on ICI ARTV, in the fall of 2014. It follows six emerging artists at work during innovative masterclasses at the Arsenal in Montreal.
