The workshop will explore movement and composition through analysis of a few works from the repertory of the CCN-Ballet de Lorraine as well as examining creative methods related to the aesthetic and cultural approaches of the choreographers. It will also focus on how a dancer, working in a repertory company such as this one, can be technically and artistically nourished by diverse encounters.
