Eleanor Bauer Brussels

Tentative Assembly (the tent piece)

Eleanor Bauer is a talented American dancer who trained in New York and Brussels, where she now lives. Over the past few years she has made her mark as one of the rising stars of the Belgian and international choreographic scene. Greatly inspired by aesthetic, philosophical and political theory, her work puts genuine choreographic talent coupled with an irresistible sense of humour to the service of a very articulate reflection on the world today.
