Learn the gestures from Ombra.

The annual tribute to dance across Flanders and Brussels falls this year on Saturday, April 27, 2024. As the Dance Day this year coincides with the performance series of *Ombra*, we have something very special in store. Register here.

In his latest performance Ombra, Alain Platel unites choir members, dancers, and musicians in a production where encounters are paramount. Collaboration with Bart Verheyden, a sign language coach and himself deaf, enriches the piece by converting opera arias into expressive gestures, emphasizing that even a simple gesture can carry deep meaning.

During Dance Day on Saturday, April 27, 2024, we offer you the chance to learn the gestures from *Ombra* yourself in a workshop led by assistant choreographer Bérangère Bodin. The sessions start at 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM, last about 50 minutes, and conclude with a short presentation in the hall, overlooking the *Ombra* scene. Suitable for all ages, no experience is required and participation is free of charge.
