17h10 – 17h30 Audience discussion

From all four corners of Europe, the choreographers, each in the unique nature of their language and approach, pose questions that reflect universal preoccupations, timeless and yet so modern.


The Festival will host the 3rd part of the project begun and accompanied by Eric Oberdorff, artistic director of the Cie Humaine, which allows for showcasing the work of 4 companies that are members of the European Studiotrade network.

What impact do our fears have on our bodies, our relations with each other, our souls? Are we safe? How can we preserve our existence as individuals and not allow ourselves to be submerged into the anonymity of the crowd by the social rules, norms and moral codes imposed? What is beauty? What is the significant, fragile, impossible part emanating from the body I’m looking at? What happens when dream and reality collide? What part does magic play? Or fiction? 

By their performances, in the form of showcases, short film screenings, meetings and discussions by way of masterclasses, the artists form the echo of a promise and deliver part of their vision of our era. A turbulent day that illustrates the dynamics of the independent European choreographical scene.
