Jedeya. A bubble of memories of the ancestral gestures that shaped the life of a Tunisian grandmother and which have been passed down from one generation to the next. Sofian Jouini explores the memory of bodies through the prism of his grandmother. He explores the gestures of everyday life and those of working the land up to the kneading of bread. In 2020, immersed in a nursing home, with the elderly, he collected their testimonies around the daily gestures that had filled their past lives. Between Tunisia and Brittany, these life stories have nourished the creation of Jedeya. Sofian invites us to sit around a bread oven to revisit the gestures that punctuate existence.

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.
