Bringing theater to the street and the street to the theater
ON THE STREET
The creation festival organized at the end of September is preceded, since 2015, by the Detours Cyphers which take place every Wednesday of July, August and September in the center of Brussels and in various cities of Wallonia-Brussels.
The Detours Quartiers allows us to reach a public who is less aware of artistic creations. Last year, we invited the champions of the Detours to lead workshops directly to the residents of these neighborhoods.
URBAN DANCE CARAVAN
Conceived and (co) created with students in scenography from the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts Visuels – La Cambre, Brussels2030 and the Théâtre National Wallonie-Bruxelles, the Urban Dance Caravan is a huge urban dance movement that crosses the city center, from square to square, to lead us to the heart of the Théâtre National.
Work in progress
Through the Work in Progress program, the Detours Festival supports the professionalization of urban choreographers from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation and other countries. These shared stage evenings give young hip-hop choreographers access to the cultural spheres by presenting their works in progress.
Final battle at the Théâtre National
Final battle at TN
The final of the 2022 edition at the National Theatre was a great success.
See you again on September 23, 2023 for an even more epic final battle.
The program mainly includes the creations that won a prize at the previous year’s WIP. In 2022, the premiere of “La Cage” (Faraja Batumike) took place at the Raffinerie / Charleroi Danse.
