THE TEAM

François Grisé - Founder and Artistic director 

François Grisé’s artistic work is multidisciplinary, as it incorporates elements of theatre, installation, performance, visual arts and social innovation. Up until now, his artworks bring into question and reframe the fleeting and fragile nature of living beings. In the POESIS projects, humans, when put in the hot seat, find themselves in a state of vulnerability. It considers our perception with ourselves, physical places, individual and collective space. 

​ 

By setting spectators in front of the vulnerability of the human condition, his works ask the question: What happens when we take the time to meet each other? When we ponder our presence in this world? This exposure to the transience of our existence amplifies the sensation and mindfulness in being alive. 

​ 

Since 2014, with the help of his teams, he directs a large creative cycle entitled Vivre vieux (Living old) which interrogates our individual and collective actions when faced with the new realities of aging. This cycle includes four POESIS, a documentary play and corollaries that prompt further reflection.

Théophile Bégin - Project Manager, HABITATS

Théophile graduated from the University of Montreal with a Bachelor's degree in Anthropology in 2018. A year later, he left for South Korea, where he decided to pursue his studies in international relations. He received his master's degree in 2020 and distinguished himself by receiving the Outstanding Academic Achievement Award. After three years of loving and learning about a culture that was foreign to him at first, Theophile finally left Seoul to return to his hometown of Montreal.  

He has been a researcher for the Institute for Global Engagement and Empowerment, where he helps organize the Global Engagement and Empowerment Forum, an international forum dedicated to sustainable development. Theophile also served as editor-in-chief of the Yonsei Journal of International Studies. 

An activist during the 2012 strike and still passionate about theater and creation, Théophile now combines his interest in social issues and human rights with the skills he has acquired throughout his academic and professional career.
