We have plenty of it ! You, me, him, her… and if we mix these ideas and these people, it gives still others creative ones ! Well, <strong>Co[labo]rations, that’s it </strong>: the meeting between 2 Belgian artists and 2 Quebec artists.  By belgo-quebecois pairs, they will collaborate to create 2 new performances !</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Brussels</strong> and <strong>Montreal</strong> are ideals for this project. These are dynamic platforms that support artistic exploration, which allows <strong>hybridisation</strong> of artistic practices, and more importantly : <strong>open horizon of possibilities</strong> in order to remind that what is ‘art and culture’ can cover a range of varied practices et not only the ones that are usually highlighted.</p> <p>  </p> <p> As it is an interdisciplinary project, each artist has a different practice, which promises <strong>innovative results, but also intriguing ones </strong>!

Since the winter of 2012, she continues her artistic work in Montreal.  In collaboration with several artists and structures, she manages, co-directs, choreographes and dances in<strong> various interdisciplinary creative projects designed to and in the public space, interacting with people.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Through performances combining dance and other disciplines, she desired to cause reflections and critical discussions related to art and society, what unites us and what separates us.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Stéphanie Laforce <img alt="Drapeau_belge-1478795880" height="13" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/367370/Drapeau_belge-1478795880.gif" width="20"></strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Multidisciplinary </strong>artist, Stephanie Laforce<strong> builds poetic sound machines</strong> for her electroacoustic compositions with which she develops original universe for interactive multimedia installations but also concerts, theater, exhibitions, circus ...</p> <p> In this way, she has worked with a trapeze artists, made electric or acoustic wind harps, built huts in the city and gives concerts.

It can exist several types of immersions : sensory immersion; immersion of environment (being transported to another world via a story, or a different context); or a more material immersion (drop a solid material into liquid, which brings ideas of visible/invisible; appearance and disappearance of a movement, body or an object).</p> <p>  </p> <p> The immersion also raises questions with contemporary issues : through the colossal number of stimuli that we have to face every day, are not we invited or forced to be immersed in others worlds ? Therefore appears the plurality of possible worlds and the question of reality.</p> <p>  </p> <p> This thematic has also been an <strong>inspiration</strong>. In order to highlight creativity, larger than art, some <strong>creative partners</strong> are invited next to the project : Immersion by <strong>Virtual Reality</strong>, or through<strong> Multi-sensory tasting experience</strong> with wine or chocolate and music <strong>!

Allocation of funds
