LA TRESSEMontréal, Canada
After the three dancers’ serendipitous meeting while attending a Gaga Intensive in Tel Aviv, Erin O’Loughlin (Calgary) and Laura Toma (Ottawa, the first certified Gaga teacher in Canada) decided to relocate to Montréal and formed the collective LA TRESSE together with Geneviève Boulet.
Geneviève Boulet/The Magician, Erin O’Loughlin/The Empress, and Laura Toma/The Priestess believe in a collective spirit where all elements of the creative process are a shared endeavour. Driven by their fantasies and inspired by pop culture, they create worlds of contrast where the audience is transported to places both familiar and unknown. They are intuitive, lighthearted, and devoted to the pursuit of pleasure.
