15e Biennale de la Danse de Lyon 2012

The 15th Lyon Dance Biennial

From the 13th to 30th September 2012, throughout Greater Lyon, enjoy a huge festival where dance takes pride of place! There'll be something to suit all tastes …

There is no theme for this 15th Biennial, the first to be placed under the artistic direction of the choreographer Dominique Hervieu … But there will be an emphasis on creativity, on international influence and on modernity and diversity in a huge festival of dance that's for everyone!

Around the unmissable Parade, a string of events throughout the Greater Lyon area will invite the public to dance and to watch dance: free shows, dance lessons, flash mobs, family weekends and a “jump” photo competition … Not forgetting the cineballs film-based dances, an incredible Balinese night and Japanese hip hop …

A fantastically rich programme, divided into two sections -Asia and Récit (Narration) - full of surprises, humour, drama, beauty and fantasy: new additions, the classics, the classics revisited and mixtures of genres, with 19 original works of which 15 are world premieres by masters of dance or by young choreographers and are an absolute must-see.

Famous names, to whet your appetite: Decouflé, Boivin, Larrieu, Pascale Houbin, Preljocaj, Ushio Amagatsu, Mourad Merzouki, David Bobee and Maguy Marin...

Enjoy the surprises and charms of this celebration of life, where excellence and virtuosity reign supreme and carry you off in the artistic whirlwind of a city which loves dance in all its forms.
