“Tout-terrain” collection

The Centre Choré­graph­ique Nation­al de Caen en Nor­man­die com­mis­sions and pro­duces “tout-ter­rain” dance pieces to reach and engage with inhab­it­ants liv­ing in a vari­ety of areas. These pieces attest to our com­mit­ment to reach­ing out to areas that for vari­ous reas­ons are sel­dom or not at all exposed to dance. These pieces are extraordin­ar­ily var­ied and can be per­formed any­where (hence the name “tout-ter­rain”), from vil­lage halls to the com­mons, from his­tor­ic­al sites and monu­ments to parks or tour­ist­ic sites. Our goal is that by bring­ing dance out of its pre­scribed per­form­ance spaces, a vari­ety of people can have access to con­tem­por­ary dance.

    Above all, two dan­cers, who take over the stage as if they were con­quer­ing a vacant space. In all their heav­i­ness, they assume their con­tra­dic­tions in response to the sug­ges­tions of the twirl­ing notes of the music: bad-boy atti­tudes, bent backs, …
