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.





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

Open rehearsals

Rehearsals open to audiences allow them to observe the intimacy of the choreographer and his/ her dancers at work. They are interactive, and include exchanges with audiences in attendance.
