The LIEU (Laboratoire Instrumental EUropéen), is dedicated to the diffusion of contemporary musical creation. Its purpose is the construction of a European network of partners united by a charter of quality and challenge. It favours creation, exchanges between groups, structures and European composers, as well as the circulation of works and artistes from all over the world.
A first, two-year project has been launched for which the Théâtre Dunois in Paris is the base. This small Parisian theatre receives each of the ensembles of LIEU in residence alongside the Ensemble Aleph, at the initiative of the network. All partner structures also receive, in turn, events organised by LIEU. Over two years, there have thus been some fifty musicians involved and more than 25 works premiered in some thirty events in eight European countries (Germany, Finland, France, Greece, Latvia, the Netherlands, Portugal and Slovenia).
