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 allow 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.

  Hors d'œuvre

These more intimate events, presented at our studios in Nancy, allow you to discover another dimension of their work.  It’s a sort of sidestep, a teaser, an amuse-bouche before the larger creation for the dancers of the CCN – Ballet de Lorraine is presented.
