In some words...

To mark the inclusion of breaking as a discipline at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, the Alliance Française Bruxelles-Europe is looking at breaking as an urban art form.

An acrobatic dance style that first appeared on the streets of the Bronx in the 1970s, breaking leaves plenty of room for improvisation and is part of a subculture known as hip-hop. Along with MCing, DJing and graffiti, breaking is one of the four pillars of hip-hop.

With this in mind, street artist interventions on the walls of the Fabrique complement the performances in act 1 (“The scene: from breaking to the Olympics”), to make way for the MOVEMENT vernissage (act 2 of the project - “The exhibition: from breaking to street art”), on Thursday June 13.

Roubens invites us to immerse ourselves in his world of abstract waves and fumaroles, sometimes transforming into plants, sometimes into rocks, sliced into architectural shapes. As for Iota, she invites us to dive into one of her dreams and explore our emotions through the subconscious. Finally, IOxOI explores the links between science and art, bypassing color theories to question our perception of reality.


The opening will take place on Thursday, June 13th at 7 :30pm at the Alliance Française Bruxelles-Europe (Avenue des Arts 46, 1000 Brussels)

Free entry and registration required.


The exhibition is opened from 9am to 6pm from Monday to Thursday and from 9am to noon on Friday.
