When Dance Serves Art

What’s the common interest between dance and art? The body moving. This is exactly what the exhibition “Danser sa Vie” teaches us at the Centre Pompidou. And we learn that art and dance are intermingled, and they had influenced and introduced, in the early 20th century, the main currents and figures that wrote the contemporary and modern art History. The occasion to discover some of the 20th century best choreographers, as Merce Cunningham.

Exposition «Danser sa Vie» at the Centre Pompidou, until April 2nd, 2012.
The Center is open everyday from 11am to 9pm except on Tuesday.
Fee: from €11 (€9 on concessions)
