Two months around the work of choreographer Andy De Groat (1947-2019).
Andy De Groat, the man as well as the choreographer, was contradictorily several characters at the same time: fascinated by the classical repertoire and also tasting the baroque imagination or certain modern radicalities; alternately minimalist and flamboyant; almost lyrical, here and there, displaying all abstraction; seized in some work by the combinatory constraint when elsewhere, it is by the imperatives of a narrative or the setting in play of various characters. A large exhibition allows us to revisit the career of this extraordinary artist who has entrusted his archives to the CN D. Regular events punctuate this rendez-vous with a work to be seen or discovered: performances, round table discussions, daily classes, workshops for professional dancers, all thanks to the commitment of the company which is now reviving the work of the choreographer.
