The project

  • Since 2014, the members have been meeting in order to exchange experiences and open up reflection on their practices and discover and create new approaches by acting together in order to increase artistic, training and security capacities.
    This is the first time that vertical dance artists gather and act collectively to strengthen their capacities, set up an effective network and work collaboratively to recognize and foster the practice of Vertical Dance towards a large audience.

Vertical Dance is a new contemporary artistic language.
The Vertical Dance Forum aims to engage reflections on vertical dance’s practice.
What are the motivations of practising this art form?
What political, sociological and even ecological issues do the creators uncover with their art?
What crossings are possible?
How to promote the diversity of the practice and to anticipate its transmission ?
