To mark the 30th annual Eurockéennes Festival in Belfort, VIADANSE – Centre chorégraphique national de Bourgogne Franche-Comté à Belfort (National Choreographic Centre of Burgundy and Franche-Comté in Belfort – CCN Belfort) invited 18 choreographers, representing the wide diversity in the field of choreography. The film director Nicolas Habas followed them on the natural site of Malsaucy, from the beginning of the preparations for the festival, and throughout it to the end. The choreographers took part in all that happened, everywhere it happened (stages, technical storage management areas, traffic routes, crowds of audiences, backstage…) resulting in danced portrayals that documented in a recreational manner the impressive machinery needed to bring about the event.

Ballet de l'Opéra National du Rhin
Founded in 1972, the Ballet du Rhin, which has since become the Ballet of the Opéra national du Rhin, has journeyed far. From Strasbourg to Mulhouse firstly where it settled in its premises in 1974. In Alsace, France and then the world, it has travelled as an acknowledged ambassador for dance, ever growing through the talent of its successive "bosses": Jean Babilée, Denis Carey, Peter Van Dyk, Jean Sarelli, Jean-Paul Gravier, Bertrand d'At, Ivan Cavallari and now Bruno Bouché. Through their personal influence and artistic choices, they have all contributed to turning this company into a dance troupe whose expertise and quality is unanimously acclaimed. The Ballet of the Opéra national du Rhin is one of the rare French companies to move seamlessly from baroque to modern and from classical to contemporary styles, so that every mode of dance can be appreciated to the full. The long list of choreographers from Bournonville to Heinz Spoerli, not forgetting Balanchine, Kylián, Béjart, Forsythe and Lucinda Childs, merely serves to illustrate this illustrious journey. Its repertoire also includes classic ballets such as La Sylphide and Giselle and re-interpretations of iconic masterpieces such as Don Quichotte, Romeo and Juliet, The Nutcracker Suite and Coppelia, which act as landmarks for the great 20th-century choreographers, and creations solicited of both young choreographers and seasoned artists. The company consists of a troupe of 33 permanent dancers from the world over, who, in addition to their solid academic training, must be able to take on board and explore in depth a broad variety of styles.

Les racines de la diversité en danse contemporaine
Les racines de la diversité en danse contemporaine
La danse contemporaine désigne des courants artistiques succédant à la danse moderne. Mais il est difficile de cerner précisément cette expression, tant elle inclus différentes pratiques et esthétiques. Aujourd’hui, le mot « contemporain » intègre des danses actuelles, urbaines, théâtrales, de différentes origines géographiques ou «culturelles».
