Creation with people in a “post cancer” situation

Projects open to the public

Our part­ner­ship with the ERI (Écoute, Ren­sei­gne­ments et Inform­a­tion) depart­ment in the Centre François Bac­lesse is geared towards patients and former patients who are recov­er­ing from can­cer or going through hor­mone-ther­apy. Indeed, many can­cer treat­ments and pro­to­cols can be pain­ful for the body and the patients’ body-image, leav­ing phys­ic­al and psy­cho­lo­gic­al scars that leave patients forever changed. These affect the patients’ self-esteem, their bod­ies, mor­ale and emo­tions; these feel­ings mostly appear after treat­ment as it is the moment when patients are less act­ive in the fight against the dis­ease, and start think­ing about recov­ery, who they have become, what they like.

In 2022, we pro­posed a pro­gram on the rehab­il­it­a­tion of the body after can­cer with 4 prac­tic­al work­shops and after receiv­ing pos­it­ive feed­back from par­ti­cipants, we will pro­pose a par­ti­cip­at­ory cre­ation in 2023 with a group of 20–25 people, which will be per­formed on two occa­sions in the CCN after a rehears­al peri­od of some 40 hours span­ning over week-ends from April to Octo­ber 2023. Rehears­als will be led by Alban Richard and two cho­reo­graph­ers who fre­quently work with the CCN, Max Fossati and Nath­alie Schulmann.

One of these per­form­ances will be part of “C’est ma tournée”, an event whose profits will go to sup­port­ive care in the Centre François Bac­lesse in Caen. The oth­er one willl open the “Cre­at­ing favor­able health con­di­tions” For­um in Octo­ber 2023.
