SI. is a two week Summer Intensive produced by Les ballets C de la B, initiated by Christine De Smedt and co-curated by Myriam Van Imschoot. Christine De Smedt is a choreographer who has been a member of the collective Les Ballets C de la B since 1991. Les Ballets C de la B is now housed in the Bijloke Site in Ghent, with a big studio at their disposition. The Bijloke Site is a former hospital that is being transformed into a cultural site with various venues. Christine has an interest in developing initiatives that propose alternative research and production formats within this context. Christine and Myriam develop this initiative together with the aim to host artists from various backgrounds to meet for exchange and develop (a part of) a project in a brief amount of time. Christine is interested in rethinking 'coaching'. Instead of thinking of the coaching process as a one to one help, artists can facilitate one another when creating possibilities for meeting, exchanging, developing in a group dynamic.
