Let yourself be carried away by Uzès Danse
This isn’t your usual dance festival! Uzès Danse is a festival that offers spectators new forms of contemporary dance, with daring and experimental creations, in the heritage sites of the Ducal town.
This festival is organised by the Maison CDCN (National Choreographic Development Centre), a sort of research laboratory for contemporary dance. The festival proposes artistic creations that choreographers have been working on all year long.
