Workshop - The body as a canvas - Explorations around Floreus' creative process at FTA 2024

The body as an art object


This workshop is inspired by the choreographic approach surrounding the process of Floreus, a piece by Sébastien Provencher premiering at FTA in 2024. The creator will offer a choreographic workshop on the themes that run through this work born from a dialogue with the work of visual artist, Zachari Logan. In Sébastien's approach, the body becomes a living painting, a material in constant transformation.


Participants will have the opportunity to carry out improvisation exercises structured around somatic principles, to explore the use of voice and the use of the different senses in their relationship to movement and performance. Based on the choreographic material of the piece, the aim will be to experiment with the relationship to time and space and to note how these elements influence presence and theatricality on stage.


An immersion into the heart of the Floreus creation process!
