Since 2006, the Question de danse festival has enabled the discovery of choreographic projects in progress. This year, 8 artists will present their current project and participate in an exchange with the audience to enrich their work and the process of their work.

With En compagnie de Bagouet, Michel Kelemenis pays tribute to the French choreographer and dancer Dominique Bagouet, who passed away 30 years ago, through the living, and without nostalgia. From Necesio to So schnell, through performance, exhibition and projection, the event is created in a will of memory and transmission.

Both festivals will take place between 7 October and 9 December 2022.
