Sylvain Lafortune, dancer-choreographer-teacher and…


Jérôme Bouvet told us about Sylvain Lafortune, this meeting was one of the first one that we imagined as part of the Stroh Project. That has now been allowed. In March, the Strohband spent two wonderful moments in the streets of Poitiers together with Sylvain Lafortune. This dancer/choreographer/teacher was invited by the CESMD (Centre for Advanced Study of Music and Dance) of Poitiers for a two-day training course about « porté » in dance. He has been developing a technique, which enable every dancer to lift or to be lifted smoothly. More details on his website.

After his workshops, Sylvain joined us for an unexpected moment with Le Chant des Pavillons. The night after was full of exchanges about the Stroh project. The idea of a possible collaboration with Sylvain started to rise in our mind…
The day after, Sylvain met us again with some members of his trainee-team that experienced with us (and our instruments) a walk in the streets of Poitiers. Occasionally, they let themselves dancing to the sound of our Stroh instruments. Many thanks to them and Sylvain for having shared these moments with us…
