Florencia DEMESTRI


Dancer and choreographer coming from Argentina and based in Brussels, Florencia Demestri has always been fascinated by the potential strangeness of a situation or a behavior, meaning the moment when something familiar transforms itself beyond recognition.

“I intend to develop choreographic tools that allow me to create a dissolution of reality, to dig into a situation and make strangeness appear…”

She’s worked as a dancer for Les Ballets C. de la B. (Lisi Estaràs), Michèle Anne De Mey, David Zambrano, Roberto Olivan, and the collectives Finger Six and Groupe Entorse.

She also develops her own work: Spring Quartet with Peter Jasko and Simon Thierrée, Do you love me? with Piergiorgio Milano and The Last Days Project with Claudio Stellato.

Since 2012, she collaborates with choreographer Samuel Lefeuvre and together they created several shows (monolog, Olga, l’évènement and Le Terrier) performed in traditional venues as well as in more unconventional spaces, in which the choreographic research is rooted into a theatricality that aims to blur the line between fiction and reality.
