I'm not White

Cyrinne Douss uses storytelling as a way to explain her dual identity. Ten years after the Tunisian revolution, the question of identity keeps coming back like a boomerang. Since speech liberates, Cyrinne uses words, singing and dancing to express and relate a unique presence in the world and to act in resistance. Because the stage is the place of all possibilities, she sees this space as an affirmation, reconciliation, transformation and liberation. Photo Christine Dumas

VIADANSE is a space for contemporary dance creation. Headed by two choreographers, Hela Fattoumi and Eric Lamoureux, it serves as an artistic incubator for the artistic directors' new creations. It also welcomes artists and dance companies throughout the year as part of the artistic residency program. The production and touring office organizes tours of Fattoumi-Lamoureux's works in France and internationally. In parallel, VIADANSE implements educational activities, outreach and awareness building programmes, intended to strengthen the knowledge and appreciation of contemporary dance across the Burgundy and Franche-Comte region where VIADANSE is located.
