  • The choreographer-performer duet formed by Cédric Charron and Jan Fabre is presenting a new show, Attends, attends, attends… (pour mon père), inspired by the life of Cédric Charron.
  • A leading artist and choreographer since the 1980s, Mark Tompkins unveils Stayin Alive, offering a violent and rough performance, a roar…

Mélina joined our gang this summer, and we're all delighted!She's from the Vendée on the west coast of France, and her eyes are as blue as the ocean that laps its shores. In fact her kind and mischievous eyes are the first thing you notice about her, and you soon realise that despite her gentle and even quite discrete nature lies a boundless source of energy!
