Place is what brings people together. In a cross-border area, places are often loaded with history and shared cultural ideas. REMIX PLACE explores people’s attachment to places in the Alzette-Belval cross-border area of France and Luxembourg. It uses and mixes the disciplines of geography, photography and theatre to explore places, and represents inhabitants’ experiences, stories and emotions associated with places.
Throughout summer 2022, REMIX PLACE invites people to a sensory artistic experience to discover the region from the perspective of those living there and to share their own views and experiences with others.
The Agora Café explores the concepts of attachment to place and togetherness from the experience of cross-border workers and local residents. Visitors to these events in France and Luxembourg experience a multisensory journey where photographs, audio recordings, maps, and games link significant places to emotions.
An original documentary theater production brings people from the border region on stage, as experts speaking about their own experiences with professional actors. The performance invites local and international audiences to reflect on their own relationship to place and territory.
REMIX PLACE aims to generate a wide range of knowledge – scientific, aesthetic, and emotional – and to contribute to strengthening the appreciation of cross-border territory of Alzette-Belval by those who live there.
