Noam Gagnon and Dana Gingras fell in artistic love the first time they danced together; they met while auditioning for EDAM Dance. "The Holy Body Tattoo" members discuss what inspires their performances.
"The Holy Body Tattoo" members describe how they choreograph. The chemistry between Gingras and Gagnon became the duo's signature. They recall performing the Tango with other partners.
Gagnon gives a tour of his home to Robert Desrosiers. The image of the sacred heart inspired "The Holy Body Tattoo;" watch an excerpt of "Circa." Gingras and Gagnon recently began to teach students contemporary dance.
Gagnon meets with his friend, Kevin House, who may create a musical piece to accompany the dancer's solo. Both artists use visual imagery to inspire their respective art forms.
William Morrison collaborates on a film/dance project; watch an excerpt of "Our Brief Eternity." Gingras compares performing in Budapest in 1997 to a rock concert. "The Holy Body Tattoo" will be touring for the next month.
Gingras felt like a fraud as a dancer, because she explored multimedia platforms. The "Holy Body Tattoo" does not intend to dance provocatively, but rather keep tension between them. Watch an excerpt of "Circa."

Based on the West Coast, this internationally acclaimed company is comprised of two dynamic choreographer/performers - Dana Gingras and Noam Gagnon. The imagery they cast is gothic, mixed with classical dance choreography against a multi-media backdrop. Their performances are highly charged, physically challenging, and sexually raw, with a style that translates unmistakably on stage, on the web and in print. Robert Desrosiers and the Freedom crew visited with the pair just prior to their departure for a tour of Europe.
