A meeting between Art-Science and Dance

Metabody_Toulouse is a collaborative platform for experimentation, critical thinking, and presentation of artistic works, either finished or in progress, which proposes transdisciplinary exchanges between artists, scientists, programmers, inventors, researchers, philosophers, etc.

This platform, initiated by the K. Danse Company in Toulouse since 2013, in the frame of its artistic and technological research, is the local extension of the European funded Metabody project.

For the 2017 edition, Metabody_Toulouse presents various works articulated around dance and related scientific research, and developed by local, national and international partners. Specifically, the WholoDance and RCO projects.
