Boris Charmatz Residency

Residency workshop from 07 Dec 2021 to 17 Jun 2022

17 days ago

Every year, the Foundation invites an artist in residence and devises with him/her a series of public meetings allowing the participants, as well as a secondary school class, to contribute to the research, creation and production process of a future work.

For the 2021-2022 season, Boris Charmatz
is the artist in residence, with [terrain] - an experimental project without fixed walls, inserted into the city and public space through invitations around the world.

Boris Charmatz will work throughout 2022 on the conception of his next creation, currently entitled Liberté Cathédrale.

The Foundation's invitation is an opportunity to develop research and ideas through several public meetings with guests from different artistic and theoretical fields, while a class from Bobigny's vocational high school, the FCIL, specialising in communication scenography, will design an editorial project based on some of the choreographer's work.
