    2011 Edition



       Summary                      Program


    The 2nd edition went for four days, from the 6th to the 9th of July 2011. For all, this was more than 20 productions scheduled with 7 from professionals companies and 15 from non-professionals ones. Otherwise this programming intense and rich, numerous cultural actions took place through the whole four days of the festival: Discovering workshop for beginners, workshop for dancers...

    To organize an outdoors festival like this one, it’s exposing us to random weather conditions. This edition had to face a rainy weather. The attendance rate underwent an important reduction in comparison of the first edition. However, the moral balance-sheet is rather positive: an audience presents even with the rain, no cancelled shows, most of them went under the big top, the workshops were full, and the volunteer team was dynamic and enthusiast, a convivial atmosphere , all of this made this festival into a strong moment and full of emotions.



    2009 Edition



        Summary                    Program


    This 1st edition went from the 30th of June to the 1st of July 2009 that is two days during those, workshops and productions went one after another.

    The evenings were shared between selected non-professional dancers and invited artists.Under a sunny weather, this first edition gained a striking success as much by the attendance rate, the warm welcome from the audience, than by the enthusiasm of the volunteers and the participants.



    >>> A the end of three editions, the festival’s identity engraved itself inside the local, departmental and regional, choreographic landscape, because, this festival answers the needs of the professional and non-professionals dancers, by offering them a singular place of distribution and it’s answering, as well, the audience (neophytes and converts) needs by a very diversified programming. The objective to address the largest number was reached through the mixing of the public and the welcome of new spectators who knew neither the place nor the event.

    >>> The conviviality and the peculiarity of the exceptional place of the “Ship’s Graveyard” contributes without any doubt to this success which comfort and commit the company to make this festival into a strong and unique moment on the department.
