  • International promotion : the goal pursued by TROIS C-L is to develop an ambitious programme providing artists with opportunities to achieve greater visibility in their artistic work outside Luxembourg.
  • Political involvement : TROIS C-L is the main interlocutor regarding dance and related issues on a political level.

History

Founded at the initiative of the Ministry of Culture in 1994, from the outset of the TDM association (“Théâtre dansé et muet”) was intended to promote choreography in Luxembourg.

Bringing together various players from the dance world, the TDM‘s objectives were both artistic and educational.

In 2005, TDM became TROIS C-L - Centre de Création Chorégraphique Luxembourgeois. This change was in line with the expansion and the increasingly professional nature of contemporary dance sector in Luxembourg.
