The residency for ‘associate artist’, a specific scheme created by the Ministry of Culture, allows an artist to be accompanied and supported over the long term.
Its purpose is to reinforce the sustainable presence and participation of an artist in the cultural project of a labeled structure.
Since January 2021, Marion Siéfert has been the Cndc’s associate artist.
At the crossroads between several artistic fields, Marion Siéfert’s creations explore a new form of writing by inventing a new relationship between text and choreography.
