By joining the DANCE EUROPE operation! the Palais des Festivals and the Cannes – Côte d’Azur France Dance Festival brought together more than 200 people for this great European participatory project.Launched by the Ministry of Culture, on the occasion of the French presidency of the Council of the European Union, the operation aimed to invite volunteers to dance on a 9-minute choreography designed by Angelin Preljocaj and on a music by Jeanne Added. The initiative was followed in Cannes by amateur dancers, professionals, but also children and passers-by all inspired by the voice and choreography of Angelin Preljocaj and sensitized to the invitation to gather around a participatory and cultural project.
