Dance party full of joy, sensuality, anger, frustration!

Melting Pot
is a dance practice hoping to facilitate the exchange between dancers from different backgrounds. This way, participants can express or liberate themselves from all sorts of emotions, such as joy, anger, sensuality, frustration… 

Between performance and a recreative space, Melting Pot combines different approaches to performance: the frontal contemplation of a dance show, the improvisational structure of street dance, or the 'happening' of a participative performance in which the audience and the performers merge. 

The cast consists of academically trained and autodidactic actors and dancers, skilled in all kinds of dance styles - from contemporary to hip hop freestyle. DJ sets alternate with compositions, world music and electronic music are often combined - in an attempt to facilitate the exchange and potentially creating a sense of familiarity.

It is not unusual for a ‘Melting Pot’ to transform into a real party!
