Choreographer and performer, Anne Plamondon graduates from l'École Supérieure de danse du Québec in 1994. She immediately joins Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal before leaving Quebec to dance with the Nederlands Dans Theater II in Holland (1995-1998), then with the Gulbenkian Ballet in Portugal (1998-2000). During this period, Anne performs in works by over 30 choreographers including Jirí Kylián, Hans Van Manen, Johan Inger, Gideon Obarzanek, Angelin Preljocaj, and Itzik Galili. She creates lead roles for Rui Horta, Patrick Delcroix, Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leon.
Between 2002 and 2015, with choreographer Victor Quijada, she contributes to the development of RUBBERBANDance Group, first as a performer, then as artistic co-director of the company from 2006 to 2015. Anne rapidly becomes the emblem of the company, participating in the creation of over ten works for the stage as well as four short films. She is also instrumental in the formulation of the RUBBERBAND Method, which she now teaches throughout the world.
Anne works with contemporary choreographers such as Jean Grand-Maître and James Kuldelka. From 2007 to 2011, she collaborates with renowned choreographer Crystal Pite and her company Kidd Pivot, creating Lost Action, Fault, The You Show, and the duet A Picture of You Falling. In the same year, she performs in Triptyque by Les 7 doigts de la main and in the creations of Marie Chouinard and Marcos Morau. In 2016, she collaborates in the creation of Corps Amour Anarchie, a PPS Danse work celebrating French poet Léo Ferré. She also stars in the short films Small Explosions That Are Yours to Keep and Secret Service, as well as Gravity of Center, directed by Victor Quijada and Thibaut Duverneix. In collaboration with director Micah Meisner, Anne choreographs and performs solo in Red Shoes.
Since 2019, Anne acts as associate curator for dance at the Domaine Forget International Music and Dance Academy.
"I am driven by curiosity, by a quest for meaning, for revelation of my own truth and that of others. This quest is at the heart of my process - it ignites my inner fire. Strange paradox: when I dance, my body takes over, gets restless or gives way, reveals its complexities, driven by the vibrations of music or a troubling inner state. When that happens, I feel my dancing in its truest, purest form. From time to time, I achieve this state of grace, fleeting and mysterious. It is to find those moments of grace that I dance, again and again."
