Jacques Poulin-Denis

Dedicated to interdisciplinary art, dancer and composer Jacques Poulin-Denis is active in projects that intersect theatre, dance and music. After obtaining a diploma in dance from the Cégep de Drummondville, he completed a mentorship in theatre under director Tom Bentley before completing his undergraduate studies in electroacoustic composition from the Université de Montréal. His experience in various art forms has given him a great understanding and interest for collaboration in the performing arts. Most of his music was composed for theatre and dance, notably with companies O Vertigo, Denis Marleau, and choreographers Mélanie Demers and Katie Faulkner. More recently, Poulin-Denis has been exploring electroacoustic music performance, and his DRK project has earned a residency at the STEIM in Amsterdam. Poulin-Denis’ musical style is evocative and filled with imagery. Combining traditional and electronic instruments with anecdotic sound sources of everyday life, he creates vibrant music that is fierce and poetic. More
