the essential
Created last year, Evidanse must become an unmissable event, an obvious choice, to compensate for the absence until now of a festival dedicated to contemporary dance in Limouxin and Carcassonnais. It starts this Sunday.

For its second edition, Evidanse offers an ode to contemporary dance for a week (from May 26 to June 2). At the initiative of the Portes Sud company, to which the Théâtre dans les Vignes was added for the start last year, and this year the ATP de l’Aude (Association du Théâtre Populaire), the festival presents a thousand and a facet of dance through shows, activities, workshops, and strolls. In Limoux but also in Couffoulens, Carcassonne and Villar-en-Val, this event intends to bring together a large audience eager to discover this art of dance that is too often unknown in rural areas.

The opportunity to give a nod to a company that spares no effort to popularize and be an ambassador of dance, whether contemporary, jazz, salsa or others… Portes Sud was created by Laurence Wagner and today brings together three young choreographers: Maude Vergnaud, Isabelle Leroy and Loriane Wagner. The commitment of artists in the field aims to promote access to live performance, artistic practices, the reappropriation of public space, and to participate in the meeting and sharing between the artistic act and the population. .

“Dance is everywhere, for everyone”

Great commitments which are brought to fruition by the organization of this Evidanse event: “Contemporary dance is still too little represented in our territory and yet it is a formidable visual, sensitive, emotional and communicational tool for meeting the public. the continuity of our work undertaken for more than 20 years in the Aude region, we have chosen the theme of ‘The migration of gesture’ for this edition of the festival To meet populations in different places and with different expressions. of dance and the body seems to us to be of primordial importance in making culture, and more particularly dance, accessible to as many people as possible. Dance is everywhere, for everyone”, declare the choreographers of Cie Portes in unison. South.

The Théâtre dans les Vignes did not want to be absent to celebrate this agreement between dance and vines. Installed in a rehabilitated winery in the hamlet of Cornèze, in the commune of Couffoulens, this space gives dancers a suitable place where they can research, create and share with the public.
