(b Casablanca, 3 Mar. 1954)

Canadian dancer and choreographer. He studied film at Concordia University and dance with Le Groupe Nouvelle Aire, which he subsequently joined. In 1979 he was invited by Les Grands Ballets Canadiens to choreograph a workshop production and in 1980 he formed his own company, Lock-Danseurs which became La La La Human Steps in 1985. His 1981 work, Orange, was awarded a Jean A. Chalmers award, and Human Sex (1985) a Bessie. Recent works for his own company include Étude (mus. Gavin Bryars, 1996), and Salt (mus. various, 1998) and Amelia (mus. David Lang, 2002). In 2002 he created André Auria for Paris Opera. His strenuously athletic movement language and his exploration of multi-media (video, song, text, rock music) have also made him a natural collaborator with rock artists like David Bowie.
