STUK IS FIRST BELGIAN ORGANISATION IN PRESTIGIOUS European Dancehouse Network (EDN)


STUK is a member of the European Dancehouse Network (EDN), a network of European dance houses, supported since 2014 by Creative Europe, the culture programme of the European Union. The network’s goal is to carry out a collective vision on the development of contemporary dance across the borders. EDN also represents the interests of contemporary dance and tries to draw attention to the relevance of dance in society. Becoming a member of EDN requires meeting severe criteria and offering both a full international presentation platform and a focus on learning, participation and discursive events. 'Watching', 'participating' and 'thinking', exactly the main focus of STUK's transformation into a House for Dance, Image and Sound. As a House for Dance, STUK wants to become an active dancehouse with a lively community, focusing not only on performances, but on connecting the (often seperate) circuits of presentation, education, reflaction, creation and discourse - for professionals, amateurs, adults, children and youths. The first season programme created in that new context was published early June, and can be found here. STUK is honoured to be of the EDN network, in the excellent company of presigious dancehouses like Mercat de les Flors (Barcelona), Tanzquartier (Vienna), Dansenshus (Stockholm), CND (Parijs), The Place (Londen), Tanzhaus NRW (Dusseldorf) e.a.
