Jules Talavera

Jules Talavera is a passionate multidisciplinary artist who has specialized in Krump since childhood. After immersing himself in this culture and traveling to France to deepen his practice, Jules stepped out of his comfort zone and pushed the boundaries of his dance and movement in general. He joined the École de danse contemporaine de Montréal, where he rubbed shoulders with such inspiring teachers as James Viveiros, Linda Rabin, Isabelle Poirier, Brianna Lombardo, Andrew Harwood, Louise Michel Jackson, Peter Jasko, Jamie Wright and Marie Béland. It was here that he met a wide range of choreographers who stimulated his interest in research, including Ohad Naharin, Marie Chouinard, Charles Brecard, Parts+Labour_Danse, Igor Calonge, Emmanuel Jouthe, Pierre-Marc Ouellette and Dorotea Saykaly. His background in Krump, as well as the knowledge acquired during his studies, nourish his interest in dance research. Today, Jules is still seeking to create links between his urban dance practice and dance research and creation. He is attracted by the mixing of styles, artistic mediums and their points of convergence.
