Modul-dance final book

After four-years-and-a-half of development, modul-dance arrives to its end. Twenty dancehouses from sixteen countries had the chance to cooperate in a project with the aim to support development, mobility and exchange among dance artists under the umbrella of the European Dancehouse Network.

We are very proud of the work developed in the framework of this project, an example of best practice based on the commitment and the sustainable cooperation of its partners and institutions.

In the project final book we worked to collect, as plural as possible, testimonials by partners and artists participating while addressing many of the key issues that were part and parcel of the project: mobility, community, cooperation, sharing and sustainability at the European level.

One of the modul-dance project key elements is the promotion of mobility, so that artists receiving its support follow itineraries across Europe to develop their creative work and present it to different audiences.

Modul-dance presents a collection of modul-dance city guides. Each of the guides in this collection shows a city from the viewpoint of a local artist, who proposes his or her own particular route to artists in transit, seeking to put them in connection with their host city. While these city routes share some basic features, each one is different and in their differences lies a wealth of gazes, aesthetics, approximations to the local and much more. In a word, they form a mirror of the diversity that modul-dance has always fostered. Athens, Barcelona, Bassano del Grappa, Dresden, London, Stockholm, Vienna, Toulouse, Paris and Poznań ready to be discovered.

The ten city guides are available from this link:

soul project tour

"an enthralling evening of visceral solos"

David Zambrano


Soul Project, conceived and directed by the legendary David Zambrano, in collaboration with a cast of seven remarkable performers from Mozambique, Slovenia, Greece, Slovakia, the U.S. and Venezuela, invites you to get close with its glorious performers and your fellow audience members as spontaneous solos performed to classic soul tunes erupt all around you. The joy is contagious as dancers strive to embody the dance as deeply and powerfully as soul music greats -- Aretha Franklin, Ike & Tina Turner, Bettye Lavette, Gladys Knight & The Pips among others -- reveal the song.

project description  from website:

Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers are a tool dedicated to artistic research. They intend to gather the necessary conditions for projects that do not fit pre-existing systems of artistic and cultural production. Their organization and structure, as well as the modalities of residency (such as duration of stay and budget) adapt themselves to the hosted proposals.
These proposals allow to renew and question existing modalities of production, as well as their resulting terms of work and address. They belong to all artistic backgrounds. The objects and forms of research do not necessarily fit the usual practices or disciplines the initiating artists may be distinguished for.

Research projects both address the audience through the forms they produce and through invitations to take part in their processes. These participations lead to question the collective dimension of a research, i.e: the nature of shared knowledge and practices, and the way in which this activity organizes itself. These participants are volunteers, and most of them live in or regularly come to Aubervilliers.
Generally, researches are publicized through the Journal des Laboratoires, which exists under three free complementary forms. The paper edition is distributed among a network of French and European collaborators. Public openings are occasionally organized at 8 pm (5 pm on Sundays) and take different forms: performances, projections, lectures, concerts, meals, etc. The archive includes the website, reference books, along with the documentation of previous projects since 2001, available for consultation.
Projects hosted by Les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers may involve cultural, social or scientific structures and institutions, either locally, nationally or internationally committed, as well as structures of distribution and co-production.

Also, les Laboratoires d’Aubervilliers regularly exchange with several European structures: artists, activists or curators collectives, magazines, festivals, mostly self-organized art spaces, schools, etc. They share an interest for the development of alternative approaches to knowledge and practice sharing on a local level, which lead to an ongoing criticism and renewal of what is at stake in artistic research.
