After graduating, he worked with several major Canadian companies, such as Compagnie Marie Chouinard, Compagnie Dave St-Pierre, Dana Gingras/Animals Of Distinction, Sylvain Émard Danse and Compagnie Virginie Brunelle. His recent work as an interpreter includes Daniel Léveillé Danse, Carré des Lombes, Danse K by K and Louise Bédard Danse. In 2014, he presented his first creation as a choreographer, Raw, in Montreal, which was then remounted and extended in 2016 in a version entitled Untamed. In 2015, he founded his company ENTITEY/jason martin. Since, he has been engaged by the Montreal School of Contemporary Dance, the Quebec School of Dance and the School of Contemporary Dancers in Winnipeg to choreograph on their students. In 2017, he co-created the piece Falling with choreographer Janelle Hacault, which was presented in Toronto and Winnipeg and Montreal. Following this presentation, Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers awarded him their inaugural Artist In Residence position for the 2017-2018 season. His new creation Beyond was premiere at the Rachel Browne Theatre in Winnipeg in May 2018. His new piece entitled & will be performed at the festival From Jaffa to Agrippas in October 2018.
