Dance-related activities all year long. Agora de la danse offers many activities to a public curious about new ways of interacting with contemporary dance. Come into the studio and chat with the artists, attend a public rehearsal or take part in a movement workshop.

Lunch Backstage

Lunchtime art. During lunchtime, attend a rehearsal and see the creative process in action. This exclusive peek at an upcoming show is followed by a discussion with the creative team about the ideas and techniques pursued during the rehearsal. Who knows? Your feedback might have an influence on the final artistic decisions.
