Madeleine Shen

Madeleine began training in Ballet before she joined the Canadian Children’s Dance Theatre and trained in modern dance and the Limón Technique. After taking a four-year hiatus from dance to complete a bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering at U of T, Madeleine studied at the School of Toronto Dance Theatre and at the Limón Institute in New York City. Over the years, Madeleine has been lucky to learn and experience many different dance styles including break-dance, hip hop, samurai sword fighting, contact improvisation and poi. Most notably she has become a huge Axis Syllabus nerd.

In love with a landscape

She, Olivia and Megumi, have created Bare Neck and Brazen, and they plan to navigate the world of dance together. Along with exploring their individual voices as dancers and interpreters, they plan to explore collaborations with other artists in as many fields as they can find, building a support network amongst emerging artists and bringing new energy to this vibrant city.
