Marseille is now home to a permanent contemporary dance centre that hosts quality performances. Created under the impetus of choreographer Michel Kelemenis, KLAP Maison Pour la Danse is a space for creation, learning and rehearsals designed by dance professionals for amateurs, professionals, emerging artists and established talents from Europe and further afield.
KLAP Maison Pour la Danse offers a varied programme: performances in cooperation with art institutions in Marseille, public rehearsals including those of artists-in-residence, screenings and debates within the context of the programming and workshops for dancers, choreographers and instructors.
KLAP also leads art and cultural immersion programmes under the name ‘Educadanse’ to make choreography accessible to the general public.
KLAP Maison Pour la Danse has been awarded the ‘Tourisme & Handicap’ label, meaning it is accessible for those with physical, mental, and auditory disabilities.
