“For nearly three weeks, Cannes and the Côte d’Azur lived to the rhythms of Dance. Accompanied by the festival’s formidable teams, each artist offered us a singular vision of the world, its beauties and its questionings, with as many ways of thinking about movement, mobilizing the body and sharing emotions and sometimes astonishments with us.
Dance was deployed on the stages of theaters, but in Cannes it was also in the public space, on facades and screens… Intense moments of sharing and celebration:
This is the Body,
This is the Heart,
This is Cannes!”
With the complicity of 8 Côte d’Azur cultural structures united around the Palais des Festivals de Cannes, Anthéa – Antibes, Forum Jacques Prévert – Carros, Scène 55 – Mougins, Théâtre Le Forum – Fréjus, Théâtres en Dracénie – Draguignan, Théâtre de Grasse, Théâtre La Licorne – Cannes La Bocca, Théâtre national de Nice, the event covers an essential aspect of contemporary artistic creation dear to the city of Cannes, which focuses on the links between dance and cinema, innovative arts that develop common issues: movement, space, rhythm, the body.
