January 1970

In this choreographic dialogue, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Noé Soulier bring their distinctive styles to an exploration rooted in the everyday workings of the human body. De Keersmaeker’s piece draws on the rhythms of breathing and walking, complemented by the heartbeats evoked by Salvatore Sciarrino’s pieces for flute. In Soulier’s contribution, dance becomes something organic: shared movement in which the dancers constantly reconfigure their mutual relations. In reinventing the collective, via the intimate, this meeting of  choreographers strikes a political chord.

La Monnaie

The Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie is an Opera house in Brussels, Belgium. Both of its names translate as Royal Theatre of the Mint.

Today the National Opera of Belgium, a federal institution, takes the name of the theatre in which it is housed. Therefore, la Monnaie or de Munt refers both to the structure as well as the opera company.

As Belgium's leading opera house it is one of the few cultural institutions which receives financial support from the federal government of Belgium. Other opera houses in Belgium, such as the Vlaamse Opera and the Opéra Royal de Wallonie, are funded by regional governments.
