The 18th edition of BIPOD - Beirut International Platform of Dance 2022

This 18th edition of BIPOD takes place in Lyon & Beirut, with a live streaming program on digital platform. They gathered a program of performances, videos, discussions, debates, experiences and conversations around the thematic of #cultural_disobedience. Opening a discussion about culture in relation to several artistic, social, and political concerns is an urgency today. How culture can intervene and engage in the social and political without losing its artistic drive and questions. And how much cultural dynamics are reflecting a scene of inclusion and equality. What does it mean to be an artist? A programmer? And what does it even mean to be an ‘active’ audience and why? It seems there is a vital need, on an artistic and curatorial level, to rethink our approaches to culture and question current operating dynamics. Our aspiration is to explore how inspiring ideas, that materialized themselves in theatres, festivals, companies, and collectives, can continue to rejuvenate, revitalize themselves, and serve their innovative purposes.
