In honour of the Dance Day festivities, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Rosas issued an open call to anyone interested in participating in a performance who's stage was the entire city centre of Brussels.

Over the course of five hours, from five separate points on the periphery of Brussels, five groups performed a slow walk towards the centre of the city, converging simultaneously in the Grote Markt/Grand Place.

The average pace of each group was less than 5 meters a minute which means that took approximately 5 hours for each group to complete their trajectory.

At 16:00, the five groups arrived simultaneously on the Grand Place and were invited to participate in a 30 minute workshop followed by a dance jam led by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker herself with the help of dancers of Rosas and students of P.A.R.T.S.

Open to any and all who want to participate, My Walking Is My Dancing highlighted the hectic and high pace of the city of Brussels by consciously slowing the speed at which we travel from one place to another. It was a meditation and an invitation to slow your body and mind and experience the city and its inhabitants from a new perspective.

With the support of Kaaitheater, De Munt / La Monnaie, Bozar, P.A.R.T.S., the Flemish Community and the Brussels-Capital Region
