Constellation

Constellation is an artistic and cultural education scheme that explores and examines the body through a poetic, sensorial and experimental approach, with children and teenagers from schools and health and social bodies. This scheme, based in Seine-Saint-Denis, is launching its fourth year in 2021/2022 and inviting the cultural partners of the CN D to try out the methodologies, practices and outreach tools that have been elaborated over the past two years.

Convinced that we are stronger together, Constellation offers a system in which project leaders benefit from tools, resources and exchange time to reinforce the project's dynamics and the coherence of its contents. This framework of experimentation allows all participants - adults and young people - to meet and dialogue around this experience of dance, which is both individual and collective. Oscillating between freedom of action and structuring framework, the device is a lever for the realization of singular and co-constructed projects, which link practices and works to form sensitive and reflective paths.

Constellation is an invitation to explore the vast universe of dance. From practice workshops to conferences, from performances to mediation workshops, participants dance, meet works, artists and places, and question their experience. From the experience of the body and the ways of "inhabiting" it, the real involvement of the participants is encouraged as well as their appropriation of an attitude of research and experimentation. Constellation opens up to new practices, allows participants to discover cultural horizons that were previously unknown and to experiment with new ways of being and acting. To experience dance is to be confronted with what sometimes destabilizes, but which enriches, changes and grows each participant.

From work to work, practice after practice, the Constellation adventure explores an expanding territory. This territory is both corporeal and intellectual, sensitive and nourished by culture. It is by appropriating this territory that the participants will be able to inhabit their bodies with more intensity, better understand their power of invention and situate themselves as subjects of the world.
