Dancing Museums – Boijmans Van Beuningen RotterdamFriday 19 May1:00-5:00 p.m.
Over the last two years Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen was one of five European museums, including the Louvre and The National Gallery, to take part in the Dancing Museums project. What can museums learn from contemporary choreographers? How does a meaningful setting like a museum inspire new forms of dance? What impact does a moving body in a museum gallery have on the way the public perceives works of art? How can you transform a rational approach to artworks into a physical and emotional experience?
On 19 May, in association with the Netherlands Museums Association and the international partners of Dancing Museums, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is hosting a closing seminar. Speakers will look back on the experiences in the museums where choreographers made interventions as part of Dancing Museums. The multisensory experience of art will also be examined from a theoretical viewpoint. Speakers come from the international field of museum education and contemporary dance, and the participating choreographers will present some of their findings.

Dancing Museums is a two-year European project on the crossover between the disciplines of dance and art. Five dance organizations in different European cities each selected a talented young choreographer. The Dutch partner, Rotterdamse Dansateliers, invited the young choreographer/performer Connor Schumacher to take part in ‘Dancing Museums’. In the space of two years the group of choreographers travelled around the five cities, with a museum as their base of operations in each case.
‘Dancing Museums’ is an initiative of the dance organizations La Briqueterie – Centre de développement chorégraphique du Val de Marne (FR), Comune di Bassano del Grappa (IT), D.ID Dance Identity (AT), Dansateliers (NL) and Siobhan Davies Dance (UK) who found their local partners in these museums: Arte Sella (IT), Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen (NL), Gemäldegalerie Wien (AT), Le Louvre (FR), Mac/Val (FR), Museo Civico Bassano (IT), Museo di Palazzo Sturm (IT) and The National Gallery (UK).
Dancing Museums receives support from the Creative Europe Programme of the European Commission. See also www.dancingmuseums.com.
