ffiles Collective


On the air since 1996, The ffiles is an intersectional feminist media collective grounded in community radio.

The ffiles is committed to validating and disseminating the voices and work of artists who face systemic barriers as a result of their race, sexuality, gender, lifestyle, class, ability. Through their programming, the collective seeks to create space for marginalized artists within the local scene, while mindfully trying to resist processes of tokenization and commodification in their efforts to participate in and contribute to anti-oppressive community networks.

Favoriting February 21, 2024: Interview with Claire Pearl

Claire Pearl (elle / she - they) is a contemporary dance creator and performer from Tiohtiá:ke/ Mooniyang/ Montréal. She is fascinated by the transformative effects of imagination and language in performance; states of presence, detailed physical textures and lived realities. Attracted by diverse experiences of the "real", she finds answers in the raw, in the flesh and, above all, in friction. Claire collaborates closely with the performers she works with, creating intimate, personal movement structures that reflect the co-thinking of these partnerships. She recently presented a solo in collaboration with singer Lydia Beaulière at Lots of Love Party | FTA, Ego et cheval : acte 2 at Art Souterrain (co-created with Léonie Bélanger, 2022), Archives of Youth (2022) in France, and Sink Your Teeth into the Void (2022) in Austria.

As a performer, Claire has worked with Sarah Dell'Ava, Morgane Guillou, the performance collective La Brigade and in co-created works with Léonie Bélanger.

Claire is a graduate in choreography from the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance (SEAD) and the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQÀM), where she obtained a Bachelor's degree in dance and choreography.
