For the first time, the CAPE-Centre des Arts Pluriels d’Ettelbruck is launching a major artistic and participatory project aimed at young people aged 12 to 20, living, attending school or attending one of the extracurricular structures located in the Nordstad and the northern region of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. No prior artistic knowledge is required, only motivation is important.
This pedagogical project, entitled “TEMPLE – THE ART’N BE PART PROJECT”, will pursue wider societal objectives: to contribute to the empowerment of young people and the development of their capacity for reflection and judgement, to offer them attractive opportunities to discover, practise and learn, and in general to play an active role in supporting their personal and collective development, thus promoting a harmonious life path within our society.
This initiative was launched on the basis of an initial proposal and with the financial support of the Sommer Foundation, as well as the support of the Œuvre Nationale de Secours Grande-Duchesse Charlotte and in collaboration with the Nordstadjugend.
The form, content and general objective of the project can be defined in one sentence: “To encourage each teenager to express himself, create and transmit in order to become the actor of his life”.
“Le Temple” will involve the disciplines of a musical theatre production, such as dance (hip-hop and modern jazz), music, singing, costumes, scenography (sets, lighting), writing, etc. This project will be carried out with an artistic collective gathered around the dancer Nathalie Moyen (contemporary choreographer), and will bring together Elric Vanpouille (multidisciplinary artist), Benoit Callens (urban dance/hiphop), Natercia Rebleo (independent stylist/model maker) and Noémie Leer (singer, violinist).
The preparatory phase will take the form of different workshops that will take place through 4 different workshop modules: the Theatre module, the Sewing/Scenography module, the Dance module and the Music/Singing module.
The intensive phase will begin with an immersion course followed by the final preparatory stage, including editing and final rehearsals at the CAPE. Finally, the creation and performances of the show developed by and with the young artists will take place in October 2021, marking the official opening of the CAPE season.
