— A few examples

• Un éléphant dans la Ville

Multidisciplinary, cultural and intergenerational creation, mixing amateurs and professionals.

In 2003, the Halles de Schaerbeek invited us to reflect on the place of children in artistic creation and to set up an event along these lines for their festival 'Les enfants terribles'. Given the success of this experiment and the potential of the elephant metaphor, we will continue the experiment in 2009, throughout the city of Liege, in partnership with a large number of Liege cultural operators.

• Les Voix de la Terre

Solo percussionists' journey: from electronics to stone.

Philippe Schoonbrood asked us to design an event for the inauguration of the Museum of Walloon Life in Liege in September 2008.

 

• Sous les Pavés

Street performance combining contemporary dance, jazz and urban poetry.

In 2011, Alain Coulon and Michèle Detry, in charge of the Festival ‘Sortilèges Rue et Vous’ from Ath, offered us a creation for their 2012 street festival. The 'public space' and 'decompartmentalization of genres' aspects developed in the 2009 edition of ‘Un Éléphant dans la Ville’ were in line with their wish to promote a musical expression that is not only that of the ambulatory and the fanfare.

Musical journey for the exhibition ‘Le Jardin du Paradoxe - Regards sur le Cirque Divers’

• Reading-performance & bookshop for a night: grab your books!

Six hours of musical improvisation in interaction with the readers.

In 2018, ‘Le 140’ invites four musicians from the ‘Collectif du Lion’ for a physical and unique performance: in a cabaret atmosphere, authors - Isabelle Wéry, Laurence Vielle, Damas Geneviève, Thomas Gunzig, Myriam Leroy and many others - take up the challenge of sight-reading, accompanied by the musicians of the ‘Collectif du Lion’. Together, they walk on the delicate thread woven by the randomly chosen readings.

• Répercussion-ID

multidisciplinary creation on the theme of identity

In 2020, the Espace MAGH offers us a creation for the opening of its Origin'Aléas festival. It will take the form of a hybrid performance in which rhythms, words and movements intertwine, to dive into the heart of DNA and glimpse the multitude of possibilities.
