Memory, the one we inherit and the one we build, is the focus of Charleroi danse’s project. That’s why at La Raffinerie we are bringing together creations that have their origins in a look at a figure or act belonging to the history of art and dance for a period that we are calling LEGS. A space of creation and a living museum, Charleroi danse enshrines dance as an art form of rupture and continuity. A permanent legacy for future generations.


Co-realisation : Legs festival, La Raffinerie, Charleroi Danse, KANAL-Centre Pompidou


Martin Hansen

In Monumental, the young Australian choreographer Martin Hansen tackles one of the iconic moments in dance history: The Dying Swan solo first performed in 1905 by Anna Pavlova, star of the Imperial Russian Ballet. A joyful undertaking of recreation and deconstruction that invites us to contemplate the little factory of dance images. Appearing at Kanal - Centre Pompidou.
