On Friday, September 23, 2016, Her Royal Highness Princess Caroline of Hanover attended the opening of the exhibition entitled, Danse, Danse, Danse, held inside the Villa Paloma at the Nouveau Musée National de Monaco.

The exhibition, in collaboration with the Pavillon Bosio, Art & Scénographie, École Supérieure d’Arts Plastiques de la Ville de Monaco and Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo in the frame of the Monaco Dance Forum, takes place in:

“…three phases concentrating on choreography and its displacements, its collaborations and its extensions. The exhibition is inhabited by dance and its images, the body and its different rhythms, from rehearsal to public presentation. A workshop involves research of the living within the museum space, associating works, dancers and artist-stage designers. A symposium initiates the debate on the inhabited exhibitions and the spaces open to the multiple territories of art.”
