THE FESTIVAL COMES TO THE 12TH ARONDISSEMENT
A musical and dance event with Aurélie Berland and Marc Baron comes to the heart of the neighborhood at the Médiathèque Hélène Berr. Friday 19 May at 7PM, followed by a presentation of the festival. Free entry with a reservation.
THE LATEST IN NEW CHOREOGRAPHIC CREATION
The festival is at the heart of French and international creation and features numerous new works created these past few months. With its performance roster, it emphasizes the discovery of young talents alongside better-known companies whose performances are being presented for the first time in Paris or in France. Once again, this year the festival supports companies utilizing a large number of dancers on stage – a treat, considering economic constraints weighing on these projects have made them increasingly rare.
DANCE AND MUSIC… LIVE!
Invention is inexhaustible. Who could deny dance’s relationship to music, whose exploration is part of the festival’s genetic code ?
JUNE EVENTS is inaugurating a new listening period. Every Saturday night at 10:30PM, the festival confirms its appetite for live performance: improv, performance or concert. The party continues!
Though the Cartoucherie’s Théâtre de l’Aquarium and the Théâtre du Soleil are the festival’s main partners, we have also made other friends. For the first time the Théâtre Paris Villette and the Centquatre-Paris are hosting us, highlighting the behind-the-scenes exchanges between teams and an openness to new audiences. Shuttle buses help people circulate!
Artists are invited to present their projects in venues other than theaters. Indoors and out, they take you to museums, art galleries, gardens, public squares, streets and even… the Panthéon! We are happy to share this edition with 15 partners and for the first time with the Palais de la Porte Dorée, Monuments en mouvements, and even the Centre Culturel de La Norville.
The opening program honors two artists who embody the spirit of the festival. Mié Coquempot, whose career has received CDC support, brings intergenerational dialogue to life. Aurélie Berland, whose performances have left their mark on past editions of the festival and who dances here in Nacera Belaza’s choreography, presents her first group piece this year.
Throughout the year artists come through the CDC to develop their projects during research and creative residencies, and Patrick Berger’s exhibition of photographs takes stock.
6 TO 7 O’CLOCK
From 6 to 7 o’clock, take some time out to discover the processes underway for 3 choreographs who are being supported by the CDC in the 2017-18 season. The presentation of their early sketches will be followed by a discussion with dance critic Gérard Mayen.
L’Institut français and ARCADI Île-de-France propose a dance and musical journey intended for international programmers. Two days, June 8th and 10th, will be devoted to meet-and-greets and artists’ presentations. For more information sign onto: www.institutfrancais.com / www.arcadi.fr
