A tribute to France Geoffroy
It is with great sadness and honestly, heartbreak, that I try to write down in words something to express the brilliance of my dear friend and beautiful dancer, France Geoffroy (1974-2021), who died peacefully on 30 April 2021, cocooned by her closest loved ones.

It is with deep sadness that Candoco announces the death of France Geoffroy, disabled dance artist, activist and Founder and Artistic co-Director of Corpuscule Danse in Quebec, Canada. She passed away peacefully on 30th April 2021 and we are relieved to hear that she was with her husband and closest friends at the time.
“My parents gave me the freedom to choose what happens to my body.”
