Sébastien Provencher

Sébastien Provencher is interested in inter-disciplinary work, in hybrid forms at the confines of several disciplines, where body and movement are always at the heart of the artistic proposal. He approaches performing art as an object of socio-political engagement, proposing a choreographic art that confronts, questions and moves.

Graduated from UQAM’s dance department, Sébastien evolves in the contemporary dance field as a choreographer and a performer. His creations have been presented in Canada (Agora de la danse, Festival TransAmériques, Tangente, Citadel + Compagnie, Dance Matters), in France, and in Germany (Made in Potsdam). Since 2020, he has been a member of Lorganisme, a structure for choreographers, and is also the artistic co-director of the FURIES festival presented in Marsoui, Gaspésie.

As a performer, he has danced for numerous choreographers in Montreal, Quebec, and Toronto, including Louise Bédard, Harold Rhéaume, Sasha Kleinplatz, Manon Oligny, Helen Simard, George Stamos, Martin Messier, Emmanuel Jouthe, Maïgwenn Desbois, Dietrich Group/DA Hoskins, Social Growl Dance, and Marie Lambin-Gagnon.
