Isa Belle+Paradise Now

The artistic process of Isa Belle is rooted in the search for well- being of the body – in its many dimensions – associated with personal and spiritual development. Evolving between Brussels, Paris and Nice, she participated in various visual and contemporary arts performances (with Joseph Dadoune, Ben, Simone Simon…).

Since 2005 , she has been working in close collaboration with Paradise Now (electronic/sound treatments, voice, co-design) on several performances (such as the Sound massages) projects and installations (recently Body Wash, Do Deca Etre, Singing tree), interdisciplinary or multi-media projects supported by Transcultures and presented by many international cultural venues and festivals. Her projects involve all the senses and the participation of the visitor who is invited to engage in new sensory experiences.
