<p> <u><strong>What we would like to show in 2016:</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> In 2016 we would like to create a series of new, intense and sophisticated performances. </p> <p> One of the projects we want to realize is<strong> 'Triptych',</strong> a project consisting of  <strong>three short performances.</strong></p> <p> The first part  "<strong><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_PvaXYgEN4" target="_blank">Percussions</a></strong>", with B.C. Manjunath, exists already and we would like to complete the rest of the triptych with two more interpretations. </p> <p>  </p> <p> In their own personal style three musicians will revisit the Percussions composition, giving a whole new angle to both the music and the choreography. </p> <p>  </p> <p> Next to <strong>'Percussions'</strong> <strong>'Tryptich'</strong> will include <strong>'Two Women and a Drummer' </strong>with jazz drummer <em>João Lobo</em> and <strong>'Beats'</strong> where we will explore the nightlife together with Belgian producers duo <em>Different Fountains </em>and <em>B.C. Manjunath</em>. Those pieces will be for your ears' and eyes' pleasure. </p> <p>  </p> <p> To be able to create the two missing pieces of 'Triptych' we are <strong>looking for your support.</strong></p> <p> Your support will not only help us to <strong>create</strong> these pieces but also to <strong>show</strong> them to a divers audience in spaces that are <strong>accessible for everybody</strong>!</p> <p> So next time you order your baguette, you might enjoy a piece of dance with it!</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>The budget:</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Production 'Two Women and a Drummer' and 'Beats': 3.200€</strong></p> <p> <strong>(Fees for rehearsals for musicians and dancers,</strong></p> <p> <strong>recording of "Percussions"</strong></p> <p> <strong>and creation of the electronic music)</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Rent dance studio for rehearsal: 600€</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Costumes: 300 </strong><strong>€</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Communication &amp; promotion: 900€</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>fee KissKissBankBank: 400€</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>TOTAL: 5.400€</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://balletsconfidentiels.wix.com/balletsconfidentiels#!press/yvj9m" target="_blank">Ballets Confidentiels at Radio Panik and Télébruxelles during La Semaine du Son!</a></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="304" src="//cdn.embedly.com/widgets/media.html?src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fembed%2Fl_PvaXYgEN4%3Fwmode%3Dopaque%26feature%3Doembed&amp;wmode=opaque&amp;url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dl_PvaXYgEN4&amp;image=https%3A%2F%2Fi.ytimg.com%2Fvi%2Fl_PvaXYgEN4%2Fhqdefault.jpg&amp;key=ff2702755d9749cda571c6d6c2f3eb46&amp;type=text%2Fhtml&amp;schema=youtube" width="540"></iframe></p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="12183973_403143549896452_3952612016307690864_o-1450649521" src="https://d3v4jsc54141g1.cloudfront.net/uploads/project_image/image/262206/12183973_403143549896452_3952612016307690864_o-1450649521.jpg"></p> <p> © Lucila Guichón</p>
