Time to dance!

Watch Carriage, a performance by Matty Davis and Ben Gould that was streamed from New York on 8 January. Prior to the performance, the audience can listen to a compelling conversation between Antoine Pickels, Christophe Boulanger and Savine Faupin, as well as interviews of the dancers.

In keeping with our theme "Art and well-being", our exhibition Danser brut has focused on the often complex relationship between dance and involuntary or repetitive movements. A field that lies outside our capacity for control but which Matty Davis and Ben Gould explore with intuition and sensitivity. The way the body’s senses evolve as a result of injury, trauma and healing is at the heart of Carriage, a performance in which the artists develop their unique language of movement. 

A unique perspective

As part of the journey into the world of the body, the artists’ live performance from New York will include an interview of both performers, as well as a group interview with artist, performer and playwright Antoine Pickels; curator of Danser brut, Christophe Boulanger; and expert on outsider art, Savine Faupin.


This performance is part of the Art & Well-being project, co-financed by the European Union's Creative Europe programme.
