Caravane, a new collaborative project, was created by the Centre National de la Danse team. Caravane is a mobile CN D that works with local organisations and audiences in France and abroad. Caravane enables the CN D to travel to the French regions and abroad, enabling it to make its various resources – patrimonial, pedagogical, artistic and professional – available to local audiences and organisations.

Caravane enables CN D to go “beyond its doors”, to travel within the region and internationally. It makes all its activi- ties available to audiences and local dance professionals: patrimonial, pedagogic, artistic and professional. The first Caravane, created jointly with Teatro Municipal do Porto (Porto Municipal Theatre), will be held from 28 to 30 of April 2017, at the Rivoli Theatre, during the start of Festival DDD – Dias da Dança (Days of Dance).
