"LIEU d’ÊTRE" (“A Place for Existing”) is an unusual performance. Professional dancers and choreographers will lure non-professional “participants” – in three weeks of training and rehearsals they will also be part of the show, and more than 40 dorm residents will welcome the visiting artists.

LIEU d’ÊTRE transforms our idea of the city and its inhabitants

LIEU d’ÊTRE moves up the everyday city environment and changes our daily way of looking at it – the project presents an audience who is are walking towards a meeting place, dancers on the balconies, aerial ballet on the building's facade. LIEU d’ÊTRE is a nomadic creation for the cities, exemplifying the histories of inhabited places. Apart from the show, the goal is to recreate an non-traditional geography of the city through the union of professional dancers and inhabitants of the same urban space, all merging into a collective art experience.
