Faire danser le patrimoine

To mark and celebrate the 100th birth anniversary of the late Choreographer Emeritus Fernand Nault, André Laprise, trustee of the Fonds chorégraphique Fernand Nault, organizes and coordinates activities, from 2020-2021 season and beyond.

Unearthing… Fernand Nault

As part of Faire danser le patrimoine, the Fonds chorégraphique Fernand Nault invites each and everyone to contribute, in a different way, to bring the artistic heritage of dance to life, to be inspired by it, to celebrate it, to share it.

Dance Heritage Treasure Hunt

Heritage in all its forms represents a treasure made up of multiple elements. Fonds chorégraphique Fernand Nault (FCFN) invites people of all ages to a “Dance Heritage Treasure Hunt (Chasse au trésor du patrimoine de la danse)”.


An artist who has made a significant contribution to the development of Quebec, Canadian and American culture, Fernand Nault has never granted anyone the right to write his biography. No substantial writings representing his career has therefore been published to date.
While wanting to respect his will, the project consists in gathering a series of testimonies from people and personalities who had the privilege of working alongside Fernand Nault, of benefiting from his teachings or of interpreting one or more of his works, of sharing moments of life with him.
