Chassepierre hosts companies in artistic residence
In line with the ethos of our Festival, these residencies allow artistic creation to take place in a geographical and social context (rural environment).
They offer privileged moments of sharing between the companies and the people who inhabit the town, to experiment, repeat, feel, exchange and refine their creations…
The venues are made available to the artists FREE OF CHARGE with TAILOR-MADE PACKAGES according to the needs of each artist.
We also offer support for the production (analysis of the feasibility of the project, institutional information, advice on writing a document, organisation, promotion, etc.).
Meeting with the public
During their visit, the companies are invited to propose a work stage (exit from the residence) to experience their show in public, thus creating a rich exchange on all levels.
Schools, associations, inhabitants, take part in the creative process!
The artists in their creations offer you the chance to discover part of how they make their work and exchange views on social issues linked to their project. They can suggest on site workshops or in your own home.
Are you a school, a local association, a neighbourhood association? Are you interested in a moment for sharing and conversing with the artists in residency?
We invite you to assist with the working stages. Mark your calendars!
