Workshop #2: Amid the current global earthquake, how can we touch the ground?


The earth shakes, structures that seemed rigid open to movement, some by conviction, and others by inevitability. Within this context, here we are about to dance in the museum. In 2019, what does this mean? What deep movements and brave reflections does this space deserve? How can we deeply inhabit our own place while establishing generous dialogues with life and its desires?

Workshop #2 gathered all the artists and partners of Dancing Museums in Vitry-sur-Seine, in the outskirts of Paris. The week questioned the notion of inclusion. What and who are excluded? Who decides what and whom to include?

Over a one-week period, the artists took part in a range of activities and events including a lecture on transdisciplinarity by Jean-Claude Moineau and a visit of Vitry led by CAUE 94 architect Franca Malservisi, leading a series of workshops and working collaboratively to create a day of events at the Mac Val museum for the public on the 1st December. The DM artists were joined by a group of dancers and designers from La da Favelinha, a cultural centre in Belo Horizonte (Brazil), who offered a workshop on passinho and an evening of dance at La Briqueterie on the 29th November.
