Peter Trosztmer

Peter studied dance at the Concordia University Department of Contemporary Dance before moving to Toronto to complete the School of the Toronto Dance Theatre Training Program. Returning to Montréal in 2000 to work with Marie Chouinard, he has gone on to distinguish himself as an interpreter and has worked, and continues to collaborate, with many national and international choreographers and directors. His choreographic works have been selected as a top five show of the year (La Presse 2006, Voir 2012, The Montréal Gazette 2016). Peter continues to define his place as a creator who is invested in work that is sensitive, deeply researched and physically realized. His co-authored article with Thea Patterson, “Collaboration as Practice: The Winding Road”, was presented at the Canadian Society for Dance Scholars Conference in 2012. Peter has been Artist in Residence at Main & Station Nonesuch Arts Residency,Nova Scotia, and Techno Lith — New City Gas in Griffintown, Montréal. His works include several digital and multimedia pieces and he is presently focused on an Augmented Reality work for the Wilder Building in Montréal.
