What’s on

Rehearsals open to the public

The Caen CCN has chosen to wel­come 8 cre­at­ive teams this year for cre­at­ive pro­jects span­ning over the course of 12 to 14 weeks in the frame­work of the “accueil stu­dio” res­id­ency pro­gram sup­por­ted by the Min­istry of Cul­ture. Rehears­als open to the pub­lic free of charge are a major high­light of the res­id­en­cies, since they allow artists to show­case their work in progress.
