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 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.





  Open rehearsals

Hour time: 7:00PM at CCN - Ballet de Lorraine (Nancy)
Running time: 1 hour            
Free entry

Open rehearsals allows the audience to take a peek at the work as it is being created, and experience the intimate relationship that develops between dancers and choreographers. They are meant as a time of observation, but also of discussion, as time for questions is always included in the event.
