This short video series shows various lesbian couples slow-dancing to popular heterosexual love songs. Les idées noires is set in a forest near Sherbrooke where the artist and their then-partner dance romantically in the snow and was presented in France at the Desordres festival. The same year, Larose directed, on a Montreal rooftop, I wanna Know What Love Is (2011, 5). Larose followed with What's Love Got to Do With It (2011, 4), If I Could Turn Back Time (2012, 4) and 2 Become 1 (2012, 4). The series works as a reappropriation of the popular cultural texts and of environments and as an exploration of personal affects.
