Traversées collectives

Nour Awada

Traversées collectives (Collective crossings) is an artistic creation residency led by the artist Nour Awada around the practice of the body and the theme of transmission with the students of the 3rd Prépa Pro and UPE2A classes of the Fernand Léger high school in Ivry-sur-Seine.

With the support of the Region Île-de-France and echoing the research developed by Nour Awada at the Laboratoire des Arts de la Performance (LAP), Crédac is partnering with the Fernand Léger high school in Ivry-sur-Seine to imagine a residency with the students on the theme of transmission.
During the school year 2019-2020, the artist and the students work on the realization of a performance and develop a process of documentation through writing and photography, which will lead to a publication in spring 2021.
