Danse: A French-American Festival of Performance and Ideas



The Cultural Services of the French Embassy is pleased to announce DANSE, a multifaceted initiative centered on contemporary dance. Presented in partnership with fourteen leading New York City arts organizations, DANSE includes: a three-week festival, a series of public talks and two publications.

DANSE grew from a rich and long-running exchange between choreographers, dancers, and presenters in France and the United States, with the goal of giving contemporary dance a more prominent voice and expanding its visibility within a wider public discourse. Through live performance, editorial material and dialogue, DANSE provides a platform for exploring the important role of dance in contemporary cultural practice, and for examining the ways in which dance engages with and informs our understanding of the world.
