The D Festival will now start in January. The D is two weeks of dance in venues whose programmes largely feature other performing arts, plus the bonus of a workshot from Garage 29, that breeding ground for artists, to get a feel for what lies in store for us. There are also photographs by Maël G. Lagadec capturing moving bodies.
For audiences, our encounter is shifting from one solstice to the other (summer to winter) and traces a journey to be taken in Ixelles, Etterbeek and Schaerbeek that distils propositions. Sometimes they echo each other but they may also contrast sharply in form. For professionals, this new niche presents an opportunity to discover artists and include them in next season’s programmes. For some of the artists, it is also a chance to be part of Propulse off.
Like a shop window showcasing the vibrancy of dance in Brussels, the D is offering three new works, a Belgian premiere, a revival, a workshot and an exhibition. This festival on a human scale will be presenting all this between 27 January and 10 February 2022. With our eyes and doors wide open, the themes covered are patriarchy (Formless Mirror (she who reveals) by the Argentine choreographer Agostina d’Alessandro), artificial intelligence (Audrey Lucie by the French choreographer Oriane Varak), personal limits (Prémisse – a solo created and performed by the French dancer Thi mai Nguyen), care and warmth (by the Brussels-based performer and choreographer Fanny Brouyaux), choreography for listening and Balkan rhythms (by the choreographer and poet Claire Huber) and a possible transposition of permaculture principles to dance (Jason Respillieux, G.incubator).
“Extase sacré”, an exhibition of photographs by Maël G. Lagadec, merges two series of moving bodies. The exhibition can be seen at the Bar du Marni after the festival as well. On the closing evening, the visual artist will be presenting a dance and video performance with Carolina Morais Fonseca and bàà (8.03.2022, more information to follow).
In 2021, the festival made use of one of Pina Bausch’s expressions : “Dance, dance, otherwise we are lost”. Some of the shows in this edition were postponed from the 2020-21 season. We are keener than ever for the public to have an opportunity to see them, motivated by a genuine determination to support artists.
