Les Subs supports contemporary creation by hosting about 50 artistic teams in residence every season. Theater, dance, music, circus, visual and digital arts – in short, there’s a place for all the diversity of today’s art forms at Les Subs, and especially for aesthetic adventures that take audiences beyond their comfort zone.
Gone are the borders between visual arts and performing arts, the big stage and small theaters, indoors and outdoors, high-brow and low-brow, here and there. Open to the city and the world, Les Subs offers residences to both budding regional talents and international artists.
Residency terms are purposely variable to meet each artist’s needs and to adapt to the type of project and its stage of completion. Artistic teams come to Les Subs for a few days or several weeks to do research, experiment, finalize staging, develop a show’s lighting design, test technological devices, get advice, rehearse in optimum (or nearly optimum) conditions, and share some of the steps in their process with the public (meetings, workshops, residence excursions, and performances).
From March 2020 to october, Les Subs will host as artists in residence the following regional, national, and international companies: Malika Djardi, Clédat & Petitpierre, Benjamin Villemagne, Wanjiru Kamuyu, Inbal Ben Haim, Paul Changarnier (Collectif A/R), Colyne Morange, Anne-Sophie Grac, Mallika Taneja, Les Femmes de Crobatie, Cy, Sylvain Prunenec, Yan Duyvendack,…
