Constellation

For its fifth season, Constellation, an experimental artistic and cultural education programme, takes classes on a journey through the vast universe of dance. Choreographic practices, mediation workshops, parent-child workshops, lectures on the body, its anatomy and its representations, performances, encounters and tools for exploring dance make up each journey and are linked by a common thematic question: "how do I inhabit my body through dance?".

Constellation was created in 2018 by the Centre national de la danse. This artistic and cultural education programme is aimed at a school audience and is part of the long "artistic education pathway" that each student experiences during their schooling. The stages of Constellation will contribute to making it a moment of discovery of the world of dance, of sharing an artistic experience that opens up new territories for sensitivity and the imagination. Over the course of the year, the encounter with new people, cultural places and works of art helps to discover new ways of living and thinking, opens up awareness and practice of the body, provides cultural references and contributes to the development of the personality. The actions carried out are in dialogue with the activities in the classroom and with the skills that are built there.

To achieve this, each group goes through an experience with an introduction in class, seven days of choreographic practice and mediation workshops, two conferences on the anatomy of the body and representations of the body throughout history, two performances, a parent-child workshop (for the 1st level), a day of meetings with other groups and a conclusion in class.
