a collective creation:
2 dancers encounter
a collective creation
On the Matter of Flowers brings together six dance artists, choreographers and performers. On the Matter of Flowers brings together six creative universes, each so different and complementary from the other, to create a unique, collective work while apart. On the Matter of Flowers is an unexpected, atypical, and challenging opportunity. It is also the chance to bring together the imaginations and visions of these creative minds in a choreographic work reflecting the love of dance that unites them.
a new reality
Stifled in their artistic pursuits, four choreographers have come together to find a subterfuge to the lack of human contact: a duet created from afar with a pair of virtuoso performers. Four creative minds of choreographers, four artistic spirits and accomplices, who come together to explore, question and deepen their understanding of the notions of touch, intimacy and human contact. These dance composers come together in the physicality and excellence of their choreographic works, which they each express in their own unique way: Andrea Peña’s raw, rigorous, and visceral energy, Christophe Garcia’s intimate, sensitive, and vibrant choreographic writing, Ismaël Mouaraki’s physical, organic, and urban intensity, and Dominique Porte’s lyrical, whimsical, and intuitive signature.
To complement this creation, several activities have been designed especially for your audiences. The artistic team draws from the theme of the show to create encounters in motion. These encounters, led by the dancers of the show, can be held before or after the performance. Introducing the four choreographers' artistic vision will enable the audience to understand the work and refine their perspectives.
