Dancing at the Crossroads (As We Walk)

Coproduction 2022
Dancing at the crossroads as we walk

Since 2020, Fabián Barba, Cecilia Lisa Eliceche, Moya Michael, Sujata Goel, Jolie Reymond Ngemi and Carlos Maria Romero aka Atabey Mamasita have been coming together to write, work and converse as Dancing at the Crossroads (as we walk).

They are a group of migrant dance professionals who have studied in, lived in or are based in Flanders. Their collective work seeks to unveil and confront colonialism and racism in the established international dance networks of western Europe. For the past two years, they have been supported by workspacebrussels as resident artists.

After a period of slow and patient labour they will be sharing their process during Open Studios 2023. The five-day programme consists of text readings, performances and conversations.
