ICI—CCN is the only Choreographic Centre in the newly established region Occitanie/Pyrénées-Méditerranée – there are 19 Choreographic Centres in France. They are the cross-roads between a wide-reaching artistic movement and a cultural policy for spatial planning, between the French government and local authorities.
Et voilá, ceux-là site internet.
ICI–CCN is involved in the following Life Long Burning activities:
Open Call: Participant for PRÉAC wanted
danceWEB is looking for a dance/performance artist/dance writer/dance teacher interested in participating in PRÉAC at La Genette Verte in France!
The seminar PRÉAC (Pôle de Ressources pour l'Éducation Artistique et Culturelle), organized and hosted by ICI-CCN Montpellier, is on Narratives: can we make fiction without making stories?

Tour Through Tanztage in Berlin
Pauline Lavogez (ICI–CCN Montpellier) and Denisa Rad (4Culture) as well as the Berlin based artists Yvonne Sembene, Hanna Schillinger and Adèle Aïssi-Guyonare are invited to Tour through Tanztage! This peer to peer workshop is a guided & shared do-it-yourself exercise in watching and talking about the work seen in Tanztage, one's own artistic interests, professional practice and experienced difficulties in creating dance works.

Intimate Choreographies – Rencontre Internationale
Intimate Choreographies - Rencontre Internationale is a performative exploration. The concept, developed under the artistic direction of choreographer and curator Andreea Căpitănescu, revolves around the idea that surveillance spaces can surprisingly foster a deep emotional intimacy that transcends the unequal authoritarian structure of technology.
Performed by Judith State, Flavia Giurgiu and Elena Vlădăreanu at Magdalena Festival in Montpellier.
Performance: Swivel Open by Julia B. Laperrière
In continuation with her research on the topic of Dangerous Women, Julia B. Laperrière wondered, how to propose a body (or bodies), a dance (or dances) that could be dangerous to hegemonic structures of power? In Swivel Open, this question puts her body at work through the materiality of a two meter high metallic structure, fully intertwined in a physical duo. In an attempt to (swivel) open, bend or deconstruct this structure, she works between technical maneuvers, brutal force, risk taking, mathematical precision, gentleness and refined sensuality to fuel a dance that allows complexity, where multiple relational modes can appear and exist simultaneously.
