Saint-Denis Market & Basilica of Saint-Denis
June 25, 29, 30 and July 1, 2, 6, 7 & 9, 2022

After a very successful and sold-out run of SPACES: Saint-Denis in 2021, the Saint-Denis Market and Basilica of Saint-Denis hosted an updated version of SPACES in the summer of 2022 that featured additional storytellers and artists.

An immersive experience that merges contemporary performance and the ancient art of storytelling, SPACES is a site-specific participatory work, created and performed with the local community that gives this place its life and identity.

Trailer from SPACES: Saint Denis 2021. 

In Saint-Denis, audience members were guided in groups by silent dancers on a musical and dance journey that started at the Halle du Marché and finished at the Basilica of Saint-Denis. On the way, they met local residents who shared personal intimate moments of their lives in their city.

SPACES: Saint-Denis 2021 involved an intensive creation process that was based on a series of storytelling events.
