Meeting the Neigbours in Cite des Electiciens

I got invited for Meet the Neighbours residency by Comédie de Béthune to Cité des Électriciens. For two weeks I would live and work there. In the public place that became the monument of the city and it’s history.

My interest was to meet as many people I could and offer them workshops during which we would engage with the plants growing on the side and with the history they remember by emboding our experience. I offered staying, sitting and dancing with the place.

It was an incredible opportunity to meet and work with grand and grand-grand children of the immigrants that arrived here and created the history.

By the end of my stay I offered and afternoon with my on-going dance research on re-membering.
