What is this event?
“ou·est” is an engaging project that explores body, culture, and identity through an experience made up of exhibition, performance, and discussions with the performers.
The name of the project is a play on words, with layers of meanings that are overlapping and intertwining, and open for interpretation:
-ou est: where is
-ou est: or east
And the project itself aims to explore the following questions through the context of contemporary dance: is our body a hybrid product of personal, social and cultural background? if so, how to we perceive that? how do we identity with our bodies?
Why use the word “engaging”?
The entire space of the gallery will be used at some points during the performance. Therefore, the team does not wish the audience to feel restricted in one spot. There will be seats and cushions for those who need to sit down, but for the able bodied audience member, we encourage standing and moving around the space at their leisure without worrying it will disrupt the performance in its entirety.
This Project is in Collaboration With:
Valentina POLCOVINICOVA: Curator of the “Body Museum” which can be found here: https://bodymuseum.tk/
AMAC Projects: gallery space on 10 Rue des Fontaines du Temple, 75003 Paris, France

Because this is a student run project, the team has two crowdfunding platforms so that the students do not have to go into debt. We invite you to take a look at them in the links below:

There is a rewards-tier set in place, so even if you feel compelled to leave just 5 euros, the team at ou·est will not leave you empty handed!
