In the frame of Brussels, dance! 40 dance photos are exposed to the wind, suspended in the streets of Brussels, Saint-Gilles, Ixelles, Schaerbeek and Molenbeek.
Created in collaboration with Lise Bruyneel (La fabrique des regards), the images are taken from the iconographic collection of the Documentation Centre of Contredanse, which includes nearly 5000 photographs covering a century of Belgian and international dance.
A poetic and unexpected way of highlighting the work of choreographers who have marked the history of dance while inspiring the curiosity and wonder of passers-by about movement. This exhibition is the central point of the Brussels, dance! communication campaign and is a way of promoting the value of archives for mediation and communication purposes around dance.
> All the photos of the exhibition can be seen on the website of Brussels, dance!
