À propos de Sasha Kleinplatz
In 2001 Sasha Kleinplatz received a BFA in Contemporary Dance from Concordia University, where she was honored with the James Saya Award for Excellence. In 2002 Sasha joined the jury for Espace Tangente's Danse Buissonnieresseries, which selects dynamic works from young choreographers to be presented annually at the inauguration of Tangente's season. In 2004 Sasha along with choreographic partner Andrew Tay, was awarded a creation residency at the Fondation Jean Pierre Perrault during which time they created the work Me and Us which was shown in the Emergence series at Espace Tangente.
Sasha has also shown her work at the National Theatre School, Studio 303, and Studio Mange mes Pieds. In 2005 Sasha participated in the pilot choreographic project of Montreal Danse, where she spent a week creating under the mentorship of Kathy Casey, Phillip Szporer, Larry Lavender, and Susan Marshall.
Sasha has also had a number of successful music and dance collaborations with artists such as Bell Orchestre and vitaminsforyou, with whom she recently completed the work Because We Can (presented at Espace Tangente in the Doubles Territoires series, April 2007). In 2008 Sasha was part of the Choreographers for choreographers residency at O Vertigo. As well as choreographing Sasha also produces dance shows. In 2004 she conceived of and produced the very successful site specific dance show Piss in the Pool, which has now become an annual Montreal dance event. As a follow up to Piss in the Pool, Sasha (along with Andrew Tay) created the series Short&Sweet: Choreographies that end quickly, which now takes place twice a year in Montreal.
