In a rapidly changing world and urban environment, artistic practices and cultural spaces are also in a state of flux. How do we envision and reshape these spaces of encounter, these laboratories for living together? The artists of Damaged Goods set up camp in a former factory in Molenbeek (Brussels) to formulate some physical answers to these questions. This space houses the Decoratelier of scenographer Jozef Wouters, which makes it an apt environment for a dialogue with the imaginary spaces that choreographer Meg Stuart is creating for Atelier III. In collaboration, they unfold precarious collective practices of meeting and making – with living bodies, with tape and wood, with curated sounds and urban noise.

Two previous editions of the Atelier-series, for which Meg Stuart and Jozef Wouters also collaborated, took place in the Kaaistudio’s (2011) and Dansand! festival in Ostend (2012).
