Floreus // Sébastien Provencher


Year of creation: 2024

Duration: 100 minutes

4 dancers + 2 musicians

Animated still life, eco-queer and ecosomatic choreography, ceremony of flowers and sensuality, Floreus is a site-specific work that brings forth the softness of queer intimacy. Inspired by the work of visual artist Zachari Logan (Website), choreographer Sébastien Provencher brings together an interdisciplinary team from contemporary dance + music + visual art + floristry to create an ambitious diptyque.


The first choreographic tableau, symbolizing shadow, unfolds inside a chapel; the second, symbolizing light, outside in a garden. Working with four dancers using improvisational systems, Sébastien Provencher brings Logan's pictorial works to life in vivid tableaux in which the body, nature and queer identity emulsify.
