The notion of “development” is the driving force of CDCN – La Place de la Danse. Development applies to: creation (of artistic residencies, production), professional training (Extensions – a two year training programme), and enabling a culture of choreography for audiences. Every year, CDCN Toulouse co-produces and offers residencies to 15-20 artistic teams. It operates as an executive producer for some companies, who benefit from links with A-CDCN network members and with other European networks.
During the performance seasons and the annual festival “ICI&LÀ”, the programme blends new forms of creation with touchstone works from 20th-21st century dance, thereby consolidating the public’s choreography culture.
