CONTREDANSE IN RISK!

Contredanse asked to leave!

A few weeks ago, we were brutally and suddenly informed of our eviction from the Maison du Spectacle - La Bellone, just as we had finished renovating our documentation centre and offices. In less than six months, we would have to empty our spaces, which have been housed for more than thirty-three years in this house, whose vocation is to bring together the performing arts in the heart of Brussels.

We are stunned by the lack of consultation and consideration. But we are confident that the rule of law protects us from all forms of abuse.

As they are gradually learning about the news, many choreographers and dancers are scandalised. Indeed, what does this decision mean for the place given to Dance in Brussels? It is the symbolic question of the place of dance within the Maison du spectacle. In the words of La RAC: "Attacking Contredanse means weakening the entire choreographic creation scene in Brussels and the Wallonia-Brussels Federation", as well as the many international networks that have been created through meetings, workshops, events and collaborations.

Contredanse was created to give a voice to dancers and to preserve and promote their creations. And we intend to continue!

Therefore, if you wish to support Contredanse and especially what it represents for you, we invite you to sign the petition initiated by La RAC, open to all concerned, before this Sunday 20th of March:

Thank you for all your precious words that give strength to Dance!

SIGN THE PETITION THROUGH THE LINK BELOW:

CID's message for the dance day 2022

This message is written as rockets hit residential buildings and people fight in the streets. It is probably too optimistic to hope that people on the 29th of April will be dancing in the streets celebrating peace. The situation demands from dancers to show solidarity to other dancers. Individuality and 'do it alone' people are out of fashion. Many people are eager to help but they risk falling victims of scam. It is very difficult to distinguish between genuine and fake organizations, websites, people, news etc. You can trust only those you have known for many years, only those with a long history of a serious policy you agree with – certainly not those who promise to do now what they have never done before. The past is the best guarantee for the future. CID will not act as intermediary. We advocate direct person-to-person communication, assistance and collaboration. This is what we propose:

- Go to the Global Dance Directory. Type keywords like: name of city, type of dance etc. Try various keywords.- Find dance professionals and call them, or ask CID for their email address.- Tell them you care, ask what they need- Send what you can- Maintain contact, give courage to overcome hardships, prepare cooperation after the crisis.

This is not the moment for romantic outbursts on the virtues of dance and nice-sounding but vague assertions. Dance, after being severely hit by the pandemic is now hit by armed conflict and the prospect of cold war on a global scale. It is the time for concrete action and tangible results, a time for dancers getting together to advance united.

Prof. Dr. Alkis Raftis President of the International Dance Council CID, UNESCO, Paris
