Exerce master degree program

to Nov 22

Exerce master degree program

Ishmael Houston Jones will be teaching at the Exerce master degree program at ICI - Institut Chorégraphique International - (CCN, Centre Chorégraphique National)

“ A mix between experimental academy and caravanserai.”

ICI—CCN is designed like a home for artists. It is an open laboratory, respectful of the past and looking to the future, a cross between an experimental academy and a caravanserai: 

  • an experimental academy: like a particle accelerator focusing and driving creation, research, training and production of original knowledge.

  • a caravanserai: the ultimate place for dialogue, boosting diffusion, transmission and outreach to the general public and to new horizons.

Intertwined and mutually dependent, the two concepts come together in this hotbed of creation, fed by the challenges of dance and all that comes with it. The doors of the house are wide open to all those wishing to join the adventure, and come on board for this singular journey to discover choreographic multiplicity and the abundance of creative diversity.
