Supported artists

This accompaniment corresponds, for the chosen artist, to a help in structuring, a financial support and the provision of work spaces. It is aimed at emerging artists, in order to offer them a global support for the development of their activity, in addition to the services usually offered for residencies. The artists benefit from a co-production contribution for two distinct projects, privileged access to the rehearsal studios, technical support, as well as privileged access to the media library, professional resources, regular training for the dancer and other training offers.

Anna Massoni and Thibault Lac are supported artists from 2021 to 2023.
