Displacement of Festivals #2: Ramallah Contemporary Dance Festival goes to Parallèle 10 in Marseille

24.01 – 01.02.2020

Parallèle and L’Officina chose to join forces around a joint project and develop together an International production hub for emerging practices.
This union, or this merger as per the legal term, means a new vitality for both our organisations. Deriving from a specific context and environment, this is our active and dynamic response, fuelled by many desires. 

Welcome to Parallèle 10, the first converging edition between these two stories! 

Dedicated to emerging practices, Parallèle invites us to discover and follow the emergence and formulation of new visions, forms, languages and thoughts. They invite us to listen to the rustling of what is appearing, making it possible for them to reach their full power, as a way of greeting tomorrow and be an active then. 

If art is a sounding board where various forms of relations to the world can emerge, against any instrumental reason, an international festival is an opportunity to reinvent a joint experience made up of heterogeneity, complexity and multitude. It is a tool to displace outlooks, open geographies, explore other ways and consider them as numerous potential options.

Hence for the international cooperation project More Than This*, Parallèle 10 opens its doors to Ramallah Contemporary Dance Festival — Sareyyet Ramallah. A part of the programme has been conceived together, around artists that Ramallah Festival in Palestine wanted to invite here, in Marseille. This cooperation is a beautiful opportunity for us to leave a free space to another festival which will invest it in its own way and experiment being included as part of our programming highlight.
