A place for dance open to everyone, where people come to see, dance and talk.
The Centre Chorégraphique National de Caen en Normandie is a space of shared projects that questions the world in which we live, a receptive place where dance is at the heart of an artistic, political and civic-minded vision. It is a centre for the creation, hosting, production and dissemination of choreographic works, a hub that acts as a resource for training and research. It is a place shared with artists, residents, associations and cultural institutions, a place open to artistic creation and the contemporary repertoire.
Awakening curiosity, stimulating the desire for knowledge, opening up to differences, sharing real artistic, intellectual and human experiences – these are the challenges identified by Alban Richard for the Centre Chorégraphique National de Caen en Normandie.
– Associated artists 2019 – 2021 :
Marco Da Silva Ferreira (Portugal) and Mette Edvardsen (Norway), choreographers
The CCN chose two emerging, european artists. They share a budget allocated by the Ministry of Culture to develop their work and their teams.
– Companion artists 2020 :
Herman Diephuis (choreographer) and Michel Schweizer (stage director)
In a complementary approach, the two companion artists, who are more established in their careers, contribute their experience and know-how to the development of the project.
These artists consolidate, support and enhance the development of dance in Normandy. Their strong creative energies, the high standards and quality of their work, their unique career trajectories, and their enthusiasm to reach out to audiences, all contribute to the CCN’s activities.
