LAbO is a biennial multidisciplinary arts project on new music, sound art and multidisciplinary projects for students and art shools at home and abroad. The project was conceived by the Antwerp-based production platform ChampdAction in collaboration with deSingel and the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp (AP University College). Its goal is to immerse music students (both performers and writers/composers), dance students and fine arts students in the world of professional contemporary and multidisciplinary art forms for 6 days, with a strong emphasis on the use of digital media. So they receive practical experience in an ideal and experimental setting.
CHAMPDACTION/LABO is the successor of the biennial project LAbO (succesfully organized 5 times these last ten years by ChampdAction in the international Arts Centre deSingel in Antwerp, gathering about 50 up to 80 talented arts students each edition).
From 2017 on CHAMPDACTION/LABO will be organized as a summer project, on an annual base and in close collaboration with the Summer Intensive of EASTMAN, dance company of the internationally acclaimed choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui.
LABO is conceived by deSingel based new music- and sound-art platform ChampdAction in collaboration with the international Arts Centre deSingel in Antwerp.
