Adeb - Association of the Belgian Publishers



Founded in 1984 by the Belgian dancer and choreographer Patricia Kuypers, Contredanse has aimed, from its beginning, to support creations of choreography. It wants to offer tools and resources to choreographers and dancers, to allow them to link their work in the studio to an analysis of thoughts regarding movement, the body, the composition, history and their discipline.

Its activities are principally orientated towards information and documentation, in publishing as well as training. Contresdanse is also developing partners by associating itself with projects such as round tables, conferences, workshops of reflection relating to dance…

Its publishing activity is double: on one half, the annual production of a publication (a book, CD or DVD) on a theme linked to dance or the work of an artist; on the other half a quarterly journal of news, specifically news regarding dance, distributed freely.
