Participative Workshop and Artistic Encountering, at IRSA (Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind People)

Music workshop activities

Altea Narici, selected by the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Hugo Valenteyn, flutist from Lille who both attended the 1st year artistic residency co-animated with Pascale Seydel,a musician and percussionist and Titanne Bregentzer, a dancer/performer the MUS-E workshop ‘Sense, Rhythm and Movement’ at the Institut Royal pour les Sourds et Aveugles (IRSA) in Brussels. For many years now, MUS-E Belgium has been inviting artists to participate artistically in these classes every week with an approach that combines musical expression and bodily expression, to better inhabit one’s body. Giving young people access to artistic expression in these classes is fundamental because there are few places, in or outside school, that can offer them. These young people live with serious disabilities in a society that is not adapted to them. For partner teachers, being able to host these workshop sessions in their classrooms is an invaluable source of oxygen and joy. Concretely, the workshop) session was dedicated to 2 classes of young people (+-18) with visual sensory disabilities, some of them with a mental and/or motor disability.
