PRESS RELEASE – Contredanse and La Bellone continue their cohabitation
At the beginning of the 22-23 season, it is with great pleasure that we announce the continuation of the cohabitation of La Bellone and Contredanse within la Maison du spectacle.
The work of mediation in which our two associations have engaged in recent months has borne fruit. By proposing rearrangements within the house, by reexamining our ways of functioning and by making concessions on both sides, we have reached an agreement for the continuity of Contredanse within la Maison du spectacle while responding to the needs of space of La Bellone so that it can increase its possibilities of reception for the resident artists.
Focusing on our actions and the establishment of new synergies, this is how this new season begins. For Contredanse, it promises to be rich in public events with, among others, a meeting with Trisha Brown, look from the body at Bozar, a round table organized with the RAC at the Bellone and at the MAD, to map the ecosystems of dance, the participative installation Re.dancing to replay the archives in the context of the festival Legs at Charleroi Danse, and in the spring a new walk Si t’y danses which links architectural heritage and dance history in the streets of Saint-Gilles.
