Outcome of the dance workshop in the TRAJECTORIES/RECREATION program


Between choreographic and paedagogical research, the audience is invited into a space for experimentation where learning, exchange and creativity come together in a single practice.

An opportunity to draw closer in concrete terms to the work of choreographer Marco Torrice after five days in a workshop with a mixed group of professional and amateur dancers and actors.

Taking its cue from "Melting Pot", a practice of movement developed by the choreographer himself focusing on rhythm, combining different styles of dance and approaches to performance art, the workshop explores the idea of individual and collective “imagination”, and the various possibilities of sharing and participating in this imagination, through movement.

What is an imagination and what is its power?

How can one share, invite or guide others towards an “imagination” through the body and movement?

How can one follow, or participate, and support the imagination of another person or culture?


Marco Torrice is a dancer, a teacher of dance and a choreographer based in Brussels. Born and raised in Rome, he studied philosophy at Rome’s La Sapienza University. Obtaining a diploma at P.A.R.T.S. (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios) in 2010, he has worked for various choreographers such as Thomas Hauert and Jérôme Bel, and for dance companies Hodworks (Hu), Mossoux-Bontè and Rosas (Be). He is the author of such shows as Me, Myself and I, Kitty 2012, The way my father imagined it all, Centipedes and Decameron. In addition to his work as a dancer and choreographer, he teaches at various dance schools such as P.A.R.T.S. (Be), the Academy of Contemporary Dance in Budapest, the SEAD (At), the Tanzfabrik (De), the Isadora Duncan Center (Cz)), the Artesis Plantijn Hogeschool (Be), the ISAC | Institut Supérieur des Arts et Chorégraphies (Be) and the Da.Re.
