On the occasion of the Dance Day, Cinema Zed and STUK present the dance film Ottone, Ottone/1991 by Leuven-based artist Walter Verdin and Anna Teresa De Keersmaeker. Ottone, Ottone/1991 is a video edit of the eponymous performance from 1988.
Together with a number of Flemish and Brussels-based organizations, STUK takes part again in the Dag van de Dans on April 28th 2018. The highlight of the day will be the third edition of the OPEN STAGE: we invite dancers and choreographers from Leuven and beyond to present their choreography.
