Maison de la Danse

Maison de la Danse

The Maison de la Danse, directed by Dominique Hervieu, proposes a programme where a wide array of styles meets. From leading choreographers of the 20th century to young, up-to-the-minute creators, it brings together creation and repertoire (30 to 40 companies totalling some 200 performances and 160,000 spectators per season). This project is completed by a digital, cultural development and mediation strategy which focuses on making choreographic art, in all its diversity, accessible to the most eclectic range of audiences possible. In 2020, as Lyon’s Guimet Museum will be reinstated as a Dance Workshop, a space for creating, for producing and a laboratory for promoting amateur activities, the Maison de la Danse will benefit from creative facilities which will complement the currently-used venue located in Lyon’s 8th district. Since its creation in 1980, the Maison de la Danse has been filming performances and, as such, has built up an extensive collection of audiovisual archives. Informative tools are created using this video base, including a freely-accessible video library, video conferences, an educational DVD “Le Tour du monde en 80 danses” (Around the World in 80 Dances), a documentary series “La Minute du spectateur” (The Spectator’s Moment) and the Numeridanse platform. Numeridanse is a multimedia dance platform. It offers free access to a unique video base: filmed performances, documentaries, interviews, fictions, dance videos. Every single genre, style and form is showcased here: butoh, classical ballet, neo-classical ballet, baroque, Indian, African, flamenco, contemporary, traditional dances, hip-hop, tango, jazz, circus arts, performance, etc. A new version of the website will be online in March 2018 www.numeridanse.tv Maison de la Danse 8 av Jean Mermoz69008 LyonFrance Contact person Dimitry Ovtchinnikoff – General administratordimitry.o@maisondeladanse.com+33 4 72 78 18 18...

Research @ VTi

As the institute for the performing arts, VTi is willing to take up its role in the preparation for this round of subsidies. Through facts and figures, our research provides an objective description of the current practice and policy in the performing arts in Flanders, placing it in a historical perspective and an international context. With this factual description, it provides an initial impulse for a debate about the ways forward for this performing arts practice and policy. What are potential pathways for a more sustainable practice within the performing arts and the policy that governs this? The results of our research are published in these two field analyses: Metamorphoses. Performing arts in Flanders since 1993 (2007) Ins & outs. A field analysis of the performing arts in Flanders (2011)...

Outline of Flemish performing arts landscape

For an overview of the most important producing companies in Flanders, visit the ‘Producers‘ section on the VTi website. VTi also offers recent outlines of the Flemish performing arts landscape.   Children’s and youth performing arts The Flemish children’s and youth performing arts are a prized export. In the 2009-10 season Flemish youth productions were presented in other European countries such as the Netherlands, Germany, France, Austria, Great Britain and Denmark, as well as further afield, in Canada, the United States, and even Australia and New Zealand. Both established names and new faces are doing well internationally. Download the attachment to read more.   Theatre The Flemish theatrical landscape is a rich and varied field with an unrivalled dynamism. The driving force behind this dynamism is rooted in the developments of the eighties, when theatre-makers like Jan Fabre, Jan Lauwers, Jan Decorte and many others set their sights on the very essence of theatre, namely the concept of theatrical representation. Add to this the absence of a clearly defined canon or tradition, and the structural influence of performance art on theatrical practice, and you get a fundamentally different vision of the role of the actor.

It is, however, becoming more and more difficult to make an accurate description of this so-called ‘Belgian style’. It used to be all about intense movements and odd, often black clothing, wearing sneakers and boots while dancing, and lots of chairs on stage. Today, choreographers such as De Keersmaeker, Vandekeybus, Platel or Fabre are still highly regarded and important. Download the attachment to read more....
