Line Nault is interested in the perceptive more than the spectacular. Through the body that speaks or moves, she reveals the invisible structures of human mechanisms and machine behavior. She describes her approach as interstitial, both in her work on the body and in her view of artistic practices.


She is currently working on the performance-installation Récits-Récifs. In 2021, Line presented the large-scale project Non de nom at the Agora de la danse, which took the form of a living laboratory combining installation, performance, movement and digital instrument-making. Her previous creation, SuperSuper, was presented at the same venue in 2018.


Associate artist at Recto Verso from 2011 to 2016, she produced the pieces (participatory installation), 2012 (interactive installation) and Attachée (show, performative installation and book). Among her other works: Super 8, La problématique de l’erreur, Kitmobile, L’espace des autres, Revenir en avant and Vivarium. Her projects are often structured around a digital instrument-making device designed by the Artificiel studio. She also participates within this team in the creation of Séquelles-diffusion and Boules.


In addition to her personal projects, she has collaborated as a performer, choreographer, director and advisor for various disciplined and undisciplined artists: Symon Henry, Éric Forget, Olivier Choinière, Karine Denault, Lynda Gaudreau, Martin Bélanger, Manon Oligny, Brigitte Haentjens, Marie-Claude Poulin (Kondition Pluriel), Louis Champagne, Benoit Lachambre, Stéphane Crête, as well as the companies Québec Art Cité, Trans-Théâtre, Code d’accès, Momentum, L’ange à deux têtes, etc. She has presented and danced locally and internationally.


Not far from creation, Line gives research workshops around technological devices resulting from her artistic projects. Within the Artificiel organization, she develops her personal projects and co-directs the Vendredi Bouilli event as well as the EISODE contemporary art experimentation venue. She also teaches Gyrotonics and Gyrokinesis. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in dance and advanced studies specializing in somatic education at UQAM.
