In its final residency, Dancing Museums takes over the Mac Val contemporary art museum in Vitry-sur-Seine to create an (ephemeral) city of dance.

Conceived as a place for meeting and exchange, the city of dance is an interactive installation that gives the public an opportunity to see, explore and to experience dance outside the area of ‘the show’.

The artists will share their approaches, confess, speak, interact, perform and research, with the public invited into the heart of the situation.

28-31 March, 2pm to 6pm

MAC VAL, musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne Vitry-sur-Seine
Entry is free upon presentation of the museum ticket (€5).
La Briqueterie/Biennale

An opportunity to share two years of research on how dance can offer new ways of experiencing art and heritage by challenging the usual codes of behaviour in museums and encouraging the viewer to become ‘protagonist’. Participants in the project and international experts are invited to share their knowledge and experience on how to build inclusive experiences through art and dance.
