An undeniable success for the final edition of Brigitte Lefèvre

The spotlight is on the 23rd edition of the Cannes – Côte d’Azur France Dance Festival, a true collective success. In addition to the joy of seeing live performances, the public came in large numbers to support the artists. Brigitte Lefèvre, artistic director, wanted to honour iconic women choreographers and dancers, the pioneers, for its 4th and last edition. The programme, which was always demanding, invited 28 companies with 15 creations, including 4 world premieres, 2 French premieres and 1 European premiere. A festival that kept all its promises by offering 27 performances and was sold out despite the cancellation of 2 shows. 13,000 festival-goers were invited for a fortnight to discover all the repertoires. The event took over the whole territory thanks to the mobilisation, alongside the Palais des Festivals of Cannes, of 8 partner cultural structures: Anthéa, Antibes – Forum Jacques Prévert, Carros – Scène 55, Mougins – Théâtre de Grasse – Théâtres en Dracénie, Draguignan – Théâtre intercommunal Le Forum, Fréjus – Théâtre La Licorne Cannes – Théâtre National de Nice The first federative cultural project, initiated in 2019, is a demonstration of coordination, co-construction and exemplary mobilisation of teams and audiences.
