CENTRE CHORÉGRAPHIQUE NATIONAL DE RILLIEUX-LA-PAPE / YUVAL PICK
The CCN de Rillieux-la-Pape (CCNR) is one of the 19 national choreographic centres in France. Formerly led by choreographer Maguy Marin, the CCN occupies a unique building located in the greater metropolitan area of Lyon, the second-largest metropolitan area in France. The CCNR provides production and promotion of current artistic director Yuval Pick’s works, while supporting creation and research through a residency program for independent artists and companies (including coproduction, technical support, housing, public presentation).
Appointed director of the CCNR in August 2011, Yuval Pick has had a long career as a choreographer, a dancer and a teacher. He has created a strong repertory of works marked by their elaborated, layered movement vocabulary, accompanied by commissioned scores by ranking composers. In his work the relationships between individuals and group(s) are often highlighted and challenged.
