Children of Chemistry // Sébastien Provencher

Description

Year of creation: 2017

Duration: 50 min

5 performers

From a fashion show to a football field, from femininity to hypermasculinity, Children of Chemistry both confronts and questions the notion of manliness. This quintet takes aim at stereotypes of masculine virility. Children of Chemistry arises from a single dance phrase, an accumulation of gestures, an invitation for us to imagine a plurality of masculinities.

This show can be performed on stage or in outdoor settings.
