> 3rd edition, Saturday June 28 and Sunday June 29.
The extraordinary choreographic adventure Extension sauvage continues its third edition in 2014 in the gardens of La Ballue.
The first edition of the Extension Sauvage Festival in 2012 at La Ballue, and the second edition in 2013, were nationally publicised events and were a great success. The idea was to place contemporary dance into a landscape, into nature. The Figure Project, an association created by the dancer and choreographer Latifa Lâabissi, offered the “Extension sauvage” programme, a choreographic adventure in a rural setting, planned for three years in the villages of Combourg, Bonnemain, Hédé and Bazouges-la-Pérouse. During the year, workshops for adults and children are organised to introduce different choreographic practices, in and outside of a school setting.
June 28 and 29, 2014, in its third edition, the Extension Sauvage Festival returns to theChâteau de la Ballue to present over the two days and on the Saturday night major works from dance history as well as more recent works. Choreographers and dancers from around the world have been invited to attend. Some performances will be given in the Green Theatre, an entirely plant-based theatrical space and a feature of the Gardens of La Ballue. Throughout the day, dance performances will take place in different areas of the garden, and historicaldance films will be screened in the château.
