Work in progress
Through Work in Progress, Detours Festival supports the professionalization of the urban choreographers of the FWB.
During two evenings, young choreographers share the stage to present their works in progress to our Belgian and international partners and to the Detours audience, who all award prizes. Prior to the WIP evenings, each company can enjoy two weeks of residencies.
10 projects are selected each year, always based on quality, with a concern for the representation of genres, identities and cultures. You can also find African choreographers from Morocco and Congo at the WIP. The selected projects benefit from artistic support, tools for creation, development, production and communication assistance.
We are committed to bring together more artists and create new international collaborations.
We are proud to be able to highlight the work of urban artists, to support them in their project so that urban arts never stop renewing themselves and bubbling!
