|Musée de la danse, expo zéro, 16.–17.04.2010|
||On Friday 16 and Saturday 17 April 2010, BAK, basis voor actuele kunst presents the public days of expo zéro, a project by Musée de la danse/Centre chorégraphique national de Rennes et de Bretagne, Rennes. The public days take place at BAK, Lange Nieuwstraat 4, Utrecht from 12.00-18.00 hrs.|
expo zéro is an exhibition without objects; it is set into being by a group of people, with their memories, their actions, the fruits of their collaborations, and interactions. A group of ten people including choreographers, dancers, visual artists, philosophers, theorists, and architects, spend four days at BAK working together as a kind of think tank. Over this period, the participants reflect on the issues raised by the conceptual framework of a "museum of dance" from the perspective of their own disciplines, and try to jointly conceive a staging of the exhibition taking place in the final two days of the project. These concluding days of expo zéro on 16 and 17 April 2010 are open to the public and mark the inauguration of SPRINGDANCE 2010 in Utrecht.
expo zéro is a project developed by Boris Charmatz, since 2009 director of the Centre chorégraphique national de Rennes et de Bretagne, which he renamed Musée de la danse (Museum of Dance). The edition of expo zéro in Utrecht is initiated by Boris Charmatz, Cosmin Costinas,, Martina Hochmuth, and Bettina Masuch, co-curated by Cosmin Costinas, and Martina Hochmuth, and produced by BAK together with Springdance, Utrecht.
