Mandoline Hybride

Founded in 2007 by Montreal-based artist Priscilla Guy, Mandoline Hybride explores the body in motion through different medias:  Videodances, site specific choreographies, video installations, and multidisciplinary stage performances. Everyday architecture, nature and gestures, as well as choreographic editing are at the center of Priscilla Guy’s creative approach.

Mandoline Hybride has presented works in more than 15 cities in Quebec and Canada, as well as in the United States, France, and Spain, in addition to several international festivals where Priscilla Guy’s films were screened. Mandoline Hybride has developed a specialized expertize in screendance since 2012, notably through the Regards Hybrides’ platform, cofounded by Priscilla Guy and Claudia Hébert (Toronto, Canada), dedicated to dance on screen and its articulation, development, and influence.
