This film will be presented during the event La Nuit de la danse on March 16, 2023 at Théâtre Outremont.

Usures is the result of an encounter with Saïd, a choreographer who became homeless in 2009. Set in underground corridors, as if they were between two worlds, four dancers interpret the daily emotions of the homeless. Through movement, they gradually manage to reconcile with their situation and reclaim power over their fate.

Sebastien De Buyl

Sebastien De Buyl is a filmmaker and visual artist who combines fiction and documentary, with the desire to give body and voice to the invisible, exploring the submerged part of our identities. His cinematographic style is hybrid, intimate and poetic. His films Ya me voy (2016), Tournures (2017) and Spectre (2020) have been presented and awarded internationally, notably at the Rencontres Rencontres Internationales Paris/​Berlin, the International Francophone Film Festival of Namur and the Short Waves Festival of Poznàn. His latest film Usures (2022), presented in its North American premiere at FIFA 2023, explores some of his main themes: marginality, urban space and dance, all of which are imbued with a certain mysticism.
