The Cndc has several work spaces and accommodations to support the creation and research of choreographic artists. The accompaniment of these artists is done in a personalized way, through two types of support:

– accueil studio
– residencies

The Cndc looks for a resonance of the work of the supported artists in the different missions of the Cndc. Thus, an artist supported within the framework of a studio residency may be invited to teach students at the school or to propose a workshop for amateurs or to participate in an artistic and cultural education program when these different activities have a meaning with the nature of the artist’s work.

Apply for a residency

Throughout the season, professional artists may apply for residencies. These residencies include the use of the rehearsal studio, accommodation and technical support (provision of equipment and support by the permanent technical team of the ndcc).
These requests can be made throughout the year by email (accompanied by a file presenting the project).
For the 2020-2021 season, more than 35 companies will be welcomed in residence.

Request an accueil-studio

As part of the “accueil-studio” program set up by the Ministry of Culture and common to the 19 National Choreographic Centers (CCN), the Cndc accompanies an artist in the creation process of a show.
The selected companies benefit from a residency (from 1 to 4 weeks), technical support, accommodation, co-production and possible programming.

For the 2020-2021 season, the Cndc has supported the following artists in studio residencies: Liz Santoro and Pierre Godard - Le principe d’incertitude ; Marion Siéfert - Ziferte Production ; Amala Dianor ; Vincent Thomasset - Laars and co ; Cassiel Gaube ; Latifa Laâbissi and Marcelo Evelin - Figure Project ; Jan Martens - GRIP ; Gaëlle Bourges - Association OS ; Olivia Grandville - La Spirale de Caroline ; Ola Maciejewska - So we might as well dance.
