]domaines[ is a new cycle of events following in the footsteps of "hors-séries" launched by the centre chorégraphique. ]domaines[ has a dual purpose :
It enables artists to exploit a research-space in order to construct and implement their projects, while offering the public a chance to explore and access a specific area through a range of experimental interfaces : shows, conferences, work-in-progress, internships, workshops, installations…
The residencies for research and choreography have been launched to enable guest choreographers to carry out the necessary research for renewing forms and expression.
ex.e.r.ce is a seven-month research period for fifteen individuals over the age of 20 : future choreographic artists and others who wish to work in the choreographic context. It is a place for exercising, producing, showing, sharing, probing, researching, and questioning.
Guest choreographer: Mathilde Monnier invites another artist to work in close proximity and share practices, in order to foster different way of thinking and working together.
Providing support to choreographers based in the Montpellier region is one of the main targets of the CCN, which places its studios at the disposal of dance companies in order to give choreographers the opportunity to rehearse in first-rate conditions while preparing for shows and tours.
