Presentation - Residences

ICI—CCN is a multidisciplinary hub for production and creation. As a responsible partner for choreographic projects, the ICI-CCN approach centres on the presence of the artist.

Sensitive to the realities and needs of today’s artistic projects, ICI’s support for creation is based on four main pillars which each offer an enriched typology of residences.

Residences are funded via a network of resources from the “host-studio” and associated artist programmes (initiated in 1998 by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication), along with ICI—CCN’s own resources and funding from the European programme Life Long Burning. The partnerships and complicities that result from cross-residencies also contribute to the financial feasibility of certain projects.

Associated artist residence

Allows one or more artists to be supported, over a long period of time, at all stages of their creations.

After almost five years with Vincent Dupont and the company J'y pense souvent (...) (2015-2019), followed by 3 years with choreographers Vania Vaneau and Jordi Galí from the company Arrangement provisoire (from 2020 to 2022), since January 2023, ICI-CCN has been home to the choreographers Nadia Beugré (Libr'Arts) and Vania Vaneau (company Arrangement provisoire).

Par/ICI: Residence

Combining programming of work repertory with creation during the residence of an ad hoc work, inspired by the time spent in Montpellier. Guest artists —either new or well-known, alone or in groups — develop shows, meetings, films, creative workshops, installations, etc., over a short space of time.
Through hybrid writing and choreographic performance, the Par/ICI: residence offers a diversified vision of their universes.
