Choreographer(s) : Thieû Niang, Thierry (France)
Present in collection(s): VIADANSE - CCN de Bourgogne Franche-Comté à Belfort , Mouvements
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.

Le festival des Eurockéennes de Belfort
True to its spirit of eternal youth, the festival has not aged at the dawn of its fourth decade and once again stands out as the mirror of its time, retaining its place among the great historic European musical gatherings … Since 1989, there have already been 1,777 concerts with claimed eclecticism, having pleased almost 2,813,000 festival-goers, of all ages, all backgrounds and all nationalities! This social mix and diversity of abundant styles, gathered in the hollow of a green cocoon, a little parenthesis out of time, are each year synonymous with shared emotions and beautiful encounters. A festive communion with respect for nature, faithful to the solidarity commitments of a 100% associative festival and all of its partners, communities and local associations.
