DCJ Newsletter March 2012

On 2 & 3 March, we presented the première of At Once by the Spider group. Two evenings in a row we welcomed more than 80 spectators who enjoyed a nice sound installation, delicate duets and humoristic perfor-mances and a complete make-over of the atelier with projections. This European collaboration goes on tour now in Slovenia, Croatia and France. We are glad to announce that Danscentrumjette is now official co-organiser of the continuation of this project, called « Spider Expand! » for which the Europian Commission recently approved financial support.

At this very moment, David Zambrano is working here with Gabriel Ahumade (SW), Luis Corvalan (CH), Nicanor De Elia (AR), Flor Demestri (AR), Leif Firnhaber (ES), Guillaume Guilherme (ME), Joe Jurd (AU), Cristian Lopez (ES), Melissa Marotto (US), Aymara Parola (AR), Sabina Scarlat (RO) and Joost Vrouenraets (NL).
Next week, Bara Sigfusdottir will work here for the first time on her solo. The third week of March David Zambrano is back and the last week of this month Liadain Herriott will work on her project with a few dancers.

Training Program
This month we offer morning classes with Dominique Duszynski, David Zambrano, Martin Kilvady, David Hernandez, Beniamin Boar and a weekend workshop with Albert Quesada (24 & 25 March).

10 March, the renowed dance school SEAD is once more holding its audition in our studio.

Those interested in young and fresh work are welcome on our monthly Platform on Friday 30 March. It’s free and it’s nice to have a talk afterwards with the artists. More info soon.

Upcoming : 17, 18 and 19 May, Danscentrumjette takes part in Open House, a collaboration between 25 artistic laboratories in Brussels. For the first time they open their doors for professionals in the field and for the public, who can follow a ‘parcours’ through the organisations and listen to debates. Together these places show that Brussels is a very creative and dynamic city.
