Description

Children of Chemistry
Toronto Premiere

Choreographer: Sébastien Provencher

February 20-22, 2020
Presented by Citadel + Compagnie through Bright Nights Performing Arts Series

From a fashion show to a football field, from femininity to hypermasculinity, Children of Chemistry both confronts and questions the notion of manliness. In a repetitive dance with popular and sporting references, Provencher tackles stereotypes of masculinity. Hailed as “poignant performance” this Toronto premiere is a captivating piece that invites audiences to imagine the masculine through a different lens.

Dancers:
Miguel Anguiano
Jean-Benoit Labrecque
Louis-Elyan Martin
Alexandre Morin
Simon Renaud

Lighting designer: Nancy Bussières
Music composition: Hani Debbache
Rehearsal director: Helen Simard

“Provencher takes a fresh look at the notion of social identification of the sexes (and) denounces it while sending an optimistic message against a cultural closure of minds still very significant in our time.” – DF Danse
