In April 2013, at the invitation of the Red Star Line Museum, Hans Op de Beeck made the film Dance in the museum—a quiet, poetical film that is meant to make the public think about migration then and now. No less than 770 persons played the part of Red Star Line emigrants. In sober, universal, specially designed costumes they performed a dance of ordinary, everyday actions that relate to migration, travelling and being under way. Since the opening of the Red Star Line Museum on 28 September 2013, Dance can be watched at the end of the museum visit. A last stop to make us stand still and reflect on migration then and now.
