Due to renovation works at STUK, we'll move Works in Silence by Lucinda Childs by Dance On Ensemble
to our 30CC/Schouwburg , for one performance only.

A unique insight into the early work and artistic development of Lucinda Childs, an icon of American
modern dance and one of the most important choreographers of the twentieth century. Six dancers,
from the 40+ ensemble Dance On, perform a selection of choreographies from Childs’s extensive
repertoire: fascinating both for their rarity and undeniable influence on international dance and visual
art. These works were performed throughout the 1970s in museums, churches and public spaces, yet
most have hardly, if at all, been staged ever since. A slice of dance history not to be missed.
