To put artistic creation at the heart of each action, KLAP fosters opportunities for choreographic research, artistic creation for artists at various stages of their development and by inviting local and international companies to use the space. It supports a diversity of experience and aesthetic styles and encourages public engagement through work-in-progress sharing and education programmes.
KLAP Maison pour la danse was built by the City of Marseille in response to an initiative by choreographer Michel Kelemenis. It was founded in 2011.
