Public rehearsals

Bringing audiences closer to choreographic creation is a priority for the CCN / Malandain Ballet Biarritz. With this in mind, it is opening the doors of its rehearsal studio to offer moments of exchange with Thierry Malandain and his dancers, the companies programmed throughout the season and those in creative residency as part of the Accueil Studio measure. A unique opportunity to preview future works by companies with diverse aesthetics.
