After giving more than 40 performances across Quebec, Sébastien Provencher is offering an original and adapted version of his work Children of Chemistry in the glass facade of Édifice 2-22, a cultural venue located in Montreal’s Quartier des spectacles. Children of Chemistry is inspired by the masculine and feminine standards conveyed in the media and popular culture. With humour tinged with sarcasm, the choreographer plays with gender codes to convey the absurdities that lead us to perceive our society in a binary way. Initially choreographed for 5 dancers, this showcase adaptation will bring together 12 performers per show.
A Danse Danse presentation in collaboration with the members of 2-22
FREE OUTDOOR EVENT
The 2-22 building is located at 2 Sainte-Catherine Street East, at the corner of Saint-Laurent Blvd
The public is free to come and go as they please
