In past sea­sons, Estelle Clare­ton has pre­sented some works at Cen­ten­nial The­atre namely Mon­sieur (2004-2005) and S’en­v­oler (2011-2012) cre­ated for dance com­pany Mon­tréal Danse.

Founded in 1999 in Mon­tréal, Créa­tions Estelle Clare­ton (for­merly named Créa­tion Caféine) is a com­pany based on re­search and chore­o­graphic cre­ation, a place where free­dom and ex­per­i­men­ta­tion abound. Chore­og­ra­pher Estelle Clare­ton is best known for her orig­i­nal chore­o­graphic works where lan­guages are weaved. Her chore­o­graphic sig­na­ture is rec­og­niz­able, hy­brid, hu­man and en­gaged in re­flex­ion. He ties to the the­atre and the cir­cus con­trib­ute to a strong and phys­i­cal body of work. Her lat­est creations let the body speak in a dance that while re­main­ing the­atri­cal, seeks to un­fold through evo­ca­tion. Themes of lost iden­tity and a quest for au­ton­omy are im­bued in her re­cent works.
