Stamp contemporary dance

bpost releases 20 original stamp collections every year. Each collection focuses on a specific theme.
For 2024, they chose the theme 'Contemporary dance in Belgium', among others. A sheet with 5 different stamps from 5 different Belgian dance organisations.

Alain Platel was asked to choose an image from one of the performances he created for les ballets C de la B.
A difficult choice from the many performances and even more images. It became a picture from the performance Out of context - for Pina by photographer Chris Van der Burght.

A performance made in 2010. The performance is still touring, and this at the request of the dancers. As long as their ageing bodies allow, they will continue to dance the performance;
We can already reveal that Out of Context - for Pina is playing in Paris next April.

les ballets C de la B stopped its operations on 31 December 2022 but its rich past will continue to be sustained by laGeste.
