Dance among the Water Lilies

Redesign, recreate, reappropriate, transform, adapt dance heritage: this programme of short performances with flexible formats invites visitors to discover or rediscover the wealth of modern heritage and its creative potential for contemporary dance, itself in the process of establishing its repertoire.
Dance in the immersive space of Monet's Water Lilies thus brings art and performance together to turn the museum into a hub of constant transformation and transmission. “I suppose it never begins, it just continues” wrote Martha Graham in her Mémoires [Notebooks].
