The partner organisations of the EU project SHAPERS will share and discuss the experience they gathered over the past 2 years: How do cities and public spaces challenge dance and bodies and how do the artists renegotiate the perception and role of the body in the Euro-Mediterranean? Together with eight dancers from France, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Morocco, Spain and Egypt, they made experiences on transmission, creation and cooperation across the Euro-Mediterranean for contemporary dance in public spaces and unusual locations.
