This week at the Olympic Museum (23.05.2005)

Finding the Roots of Sport exhibition

In the framework of this exhibition, starting in July the Olympic Museum will offer visitors a programme of exciting encounters with those who practise traditional games, sports, singing and music. The people invited, all specialists in their field, will be revealing the secrets of their ancestral techniques which all contribute to a common heritage. Each occasion will be an authentic chance to watch, learn and discuss! As such, from 6 July to 14 August, the Olympic Museum will be neglecting the Olympic sports and exploring a parallel universe. The result will be events based on diversity, with a plurality of body movements governed by laws and rites which sometimes overlap with the sporting register, as the boundaries are not always well defined.
