Harassment is discrimination based on race, religion, sex, age, disability. It can also refer to unwelcome physical contact. Harassment is defined by the Canadian Human Rights Commission as "a form of discrimination. It involves any unwanted physical or verbal behaviour that offends or humiliates you. Generally, harassment is a behaviour that persists over time. Serious one-time incidents can also sometimes be considered harassment."
The Regroupement québécois de la danse (RQD) created a graphic story to raise awareness about harassment in the dance community. It features ten problematic situations experienced in the context of training and professional practice presented by illustrator Sarah Arnal to facilitate the identification of abusive behaviours in this field, where the body workload, the overcoming of physical and mental limits and precariousness are important risk factors for psychological and sexual violence. It can be viewed in English or French - links below:
