On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the festival, Movements invite choreographic art – an artistic aesthetic related with music – to invest and blossom on the Malsaucy peninsula, from the 20th of June to the 8th of July.
17 choreographers embody dance in all its forms (classical, contemporary, duo, solo, ballet…) all the time, and all over the site. There from the set up to the 4 days of festival, dancers and choreographers invade public, private, and natural spaces, stages or backstages, reception or under construction places : each square meter occupied and expressed through dance.
These dance moments, captured by the scriptwriter and director Nicolas Habas (a coproduction with Séquence SDP) will be broadcasted – live or pre-recorded, on the festival’s giant screens.
