Seventeen active dance structures take over the CN D f

28 & 29.01.21

CN D Pantin

Through the Canal project, CN D makes its location, resources and spaces available to the entire choreographic sector. For two days, the fourteen studios will be occupied by invited French cultural institutions of various accreditations (CCN, CDC, Scènes conventionnées; Scènes nationales, festivals, etc.). Since 2020, Canal has also invited international structures. The idea is to federate: to offer these projects and supported artists renewed exposure in a common space-time. The programming and the forms proposed are left to the free choice of each structure: short extracts, run throughs, projections, oral presentations and so on. The creative projects can be presented at different moments of their development: whether still being sketched out, in search of means of production or finalised and in search of venues for performances. These spaces thus become an opportunity for exchange between supported artists and professional spectators (institutions, programmers, administrators, etc.). Because the professional environment is not limited to programming alone, many activities are proposed outside the studios over the two days in order to circulate exchanges between the different professions – administrative, artistic or institutional – and reflect collectively on the problems of the sector.
