Charleroi Danse: A new director and a new attitude

Charleroi Danse, the major biennial dance festival, has a new look

During three weeks at the Ecuries in Charleroi and La Raffinerie in Brussels this autumn, the Charleroi Danse festival will offer "a snapshot" of current international dance.

Director Annie Bozzini says: "Our ambition is to widen the imaginary with art and more particularly dance in all its many dimensions, its great narratives, its folkloric iterations as today's artists reinvent them, its new evolutions prompted by new technologies, all these combined components that trace humankind's universal history."

The opening night highlights the variety of the offering with first, eminent Belgian choreographer Louise Vanneste's "Thérians: solo for two interpreters", a meditation on the relation between the individual and the world drawn from instinct and inwardness, and then (LA)HORDE, a troupe of "jumpers" from all over Europe who dance "their rage of having to live their youth in this era of ours with an intensity that makes the walls shake" in their piece TO DA BONE.

Even though the biennial is focusing on francophone Belgian creation, also featured will be Indonesian artists in Belgium for the Europalia Festival as well as Senegalese choreographer Amala Dianor, and women choreographers Wen Hui (China), Marlene Monteiro Freitas (Portugal), Rocio Molina (Spain) and Maloka Djardi (France).

Joseph Kids by Alessandro Sciarroni is a show for a young audience in which the dancer uses his smartphone to film himself live from the front, project it on a big screen, and with his back to the audience interacts with the projected image, deforming, doubling, and changing for a magical performance.
