Érika Hagen-Veilleux

Érika is a multidisciplinary artist based in Quebec City, Canada. She graduated from l’École de Cirque de Quebec in 2017. Her work is anchored in the various spaces that shelter poetry, seeking it’s manifestations through multiple languages, be it body, voice, music or spoken poetry. She is active in multiple artistic fields, notably circus (Théâtre À Tempo), literary arts (Productions Rhizome, Slamcap), music (Bleu kérosène), dance and theater (Les Bambines). In 2016, she co-founded the BAM [Bouillon d´art multi] as well as the multidisciplinary collective Les Bambines, which combines theater, circus, poetry and music. Their first creation was presented at Premier Acte in 2019. That same year, she was mentored by the poet Marie-Andrée Gill, with the support of Première Ovation Arts litteraires.
