For the 2019 edition of the summer workshops, les ballets C de la B, Sareyyet Ramallah and A.M. Qattan Foundation joined forced to present a programme of dance workshops in Ramallah: Les Ateliers Déplacés. Les Ateliers Déplacés are workshops by artists from les ballets C de la B and by Palestinian dancers from PASS, in exchange with participants from different backgrounds, alongside an evening programme to meet each other outside of the rehearsal studio. All this happened in Ramallah, where a dance community is alive and developing.
The programme of this summer intensive is meant for experienced dancers, performers and choreographers from different backgrounds.
