The special programme ‘Archipel Postmodern’ will pay homage to the American post-modern dance repertoire.

This avant-garde movement, which began in the 1960s, saw the emergence of some of the twentieth century’s most prominent choreographers, such as Trisha Brown and Merce Cunningham.

The Maison de la Danse will be presenting several major pieces by these two choreographers in collaboration with the Lyon Opera Ballet.


> Summerspace and Exchange by Merce Cunningham, not to be missed from the 9th to the 11th of November 2018 at the Lyon Opera House,

> Newark, Foray Forêt and Set and Rest/Reset by Trisha Brown, to be seen  from the 24th to the 26th of January 2019 at the Maison de la Danse.

> Samedi de la Maison #postmodern, on Saturday the 26th of January 2019,

> CCN Ballet de Lorraine – 1968-2018 pays Tribute to Merce Cunningham by the young American choreographer Miguel Gutierrez, on the 8th and 9th of April 2019.


Isabelle, our editor born and bred in Lyon! She was born in Sainte-Foy-lès-Lyon in fact, studied in Lyon and now lives here. Territorial? Absolutely not! She loves travelling, widening her horizons, meeting new people and enjoys a change of scenery (without snow, if possible). Isabelle is curious and a people person, two attributes that often go hand in hand! Her favourite colour is green and her motto "a day without laughter is a day wasted!"
