Farandole européenne : “L’Européenne” ou “L’Eur’hop”

This project is being taken forward by the MESA, the choreographer Karine Saporta and the composer Béatrice Thiriet in view of the 2019 European elections. It consists of creating a dance wave (European farandole) on social networks around an action (flashmob) conducted in several European cities (Strasbourg, Brussels, Luxembourg) which would then be spread to other European sites. The idea is to associate this dance with a local community message mainly targeting young people to make them aware that the European elections are being held on 26 May. The challenge of this mobilisation is therefore to deliver a positive and active image of Europe through an unconventional means; namely music and dance.
