As an extension of the "Tout Mons Danse" Festival, the Night of the dance brings together local talent and initiatives while offering contemporary projects of international scope. From Thursday 7 to Sunday 10 October, the Night of the dance will offer a time together for this great ephemeral dance community.
Eclectic and joyful, the programme of the Night of the dance is based on three key points:
- Firstly, there are participative projects, such as the collective "slow move" creation Adagio per un nuovo Millennio, the choreographic performance Breaking The Backboard, based on the "groove" of a professional female basketball team, or an explosive show, directed by Gilles Monnart, which will bring together a hundred or so dancers from dance companies, associations and dance schools of the greater Mons area in the courtyard of the Carré des Arts.
- Projects developed with artists from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation, such as Juke-Box by Louise Vanneste or the music and dance creation Dancing the earth.
- The Night of the dance also features contemporary creations, including Lamenta, choreographed by Rosalba Torres Guerrero and Koen Augustijnen, and DYPTIK Company, which will set the courtyard of the Maison Folie alight with Mirage, a truly 360° choreographic experience.
