LAB BLA BAL — Season



Performances, encounters, workshops

Our LAB BLA BAL events are a series of regular rendezvous in which we approach dance differently, sharpening our gaze and creating the opportunity for exclusive encounters with artists of multiple disciplines, in a friendly, informal setting. The majority of the events take place at the CCN-Ballet de Lorraine unless otherwise announced.

Some of them are developed in partnership with other cultural structures in Nancy and around the region.


LAB/ SALONs include dance, current music and street art. They are live performance events that immerse the artists and public in the ephemeral act of creation.
To make sure each encounter remains unique and distinct, the CCN brings in different visual artists and musicians for each event. These are festive interactive occasions, best shared with a nice glass of something in hand.
In partnership with LE MUR Nancy.
With the support of the Conseil départemental de Meurthe-et-Moselle.
