DANCE FESTIVAL – CANNES From 8th to 17th December 2017 - Artistic Direction Brigitte Lefèvre

Parue le

Under the auspices of Brigitte Lefèvre, the Artistic Director, the works the festival upholds are unexpected, dazzling ones, in an original dialogue between traditional heritage and contemporary audacity. It is fully inscribed in this double movement - declining the past and future - with innovating, surprising and even - at times – intrepid works. A new edition - all about crossings and decidedly international - is situated at the crossroads of cultures and sweeps us along in a journey through time and space, revealing dance in all its diversity, thanks to its French choreographers and international companies to be discovered in Cannes for the first time. Conceived in a spirit of open-mindedness and humanism, this edition endeavours “to present, among the striking works of an artist, the ones in tune with the general theme of this programming” Brigitte Lefèvre stresses. “This festival is the silk setting where dance can spread its wings”.  Thanks to the impetus of the Lord Mayor of Cannes, David Lisnard, who wants culture to be declined in all its forms, a statement is being made here about the interest accorded to dance. It is, today, part of Cannes’ cultural and artistic DNA.
The Cannes Dance Festival will unfold over two high-point periods, from 8th to 10th and from 14th to 17th December 2017, so as to enable everybody to enjoy this event. Beforehand, many awareness-campaigns will be carried out for the benefit of a very wide public. The event will also include a themed colloquium, master-classes, periods for meetings and discussions with the artists and choreographers, show-cases for budding companies, proposals for all - amateur dancers or professionals, academics or people quite simply interested.
