Laboratoire Chorégraphique de Reims supports creations in contemporary dance in the Grand Est area by responding to dance artists’ needs and expectations on the territory.

Their first mission is to follow new talents in every step of their development. They discover new emerging talents, guide them in their creation, including with production and administration advise. Their goals are constantly evolving thanks to local partnerships, as well as beyond the Grande Région area. From the research in the intimacy of a studio to the public presentation, the Laboratoire Chorégraphique is an extraordinary place for contemporary dancers and choreographers in the Region and for innovating projects.

In 2019, choreographer Anne-Mareike Hess participated to Hors les Murs ! festival with her creation Warrior, which started the cooperation between TROIS C-L and Laboratoire Chorégraphique. TROIS C-L  hosted in exchange choreographer Anaïs Rouch in 2020 for a 3 du TROIS. Still in 2020, AWA – As We Are company was supposed to take part in Hors les Murs ! festival to present their creation With my eyes.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this exchange was postponed to 2021. In 2021, Cognitive Overload company from Reims came for a residency period at TROIS C-L followed by a 5-hours performance as part of HOЯS CIЯCUITS. Meanwhile, Sarah Baltzinger will spend a residency period in Reims in autumn and will present a work-in-progress of her new project ROUGE EST UNE COULEUR FROIDE.
