Alterity in contemporary dance and theatre

The forum “Un Nous à bâtir” initiated by festival Altérité, pas à pas ! invites artists, cultural workers and organizations from the theatre and dance milieu to discuss the stakes of alterity in artistic creation and presentation.
On the first day, we will explore existing practices, projects and inclusive models based on the experience of our panelists.
On the second day, participants will identify actions and recommendations to establish an “Us” that reflects our plural reality.
