Images of Algeria : photography exhibit

The exhibition "Entre deux rives" is born from the meeting of Nacera Belaza whose path is continuously inscribed in a back and forth movement between Algeria and France, and of two photographers : Antonin Pons Braley et Philippe Sébirot, whose sensitivities give an additional gaze to her choreographic work.

This exhibition traces different moments of dance, on stage or in the city, and reveals the strong link that holds together both shores of the Mediterranean sea.



Cooperation between Algeria and Morocco

In order to increase the professionalization of young artists, the company develops choreographic training in Morocco for Moroccan and Algerian dancers.

After the organization of Ateliers du monde in 2013 at the 'Institut français de Fès, the collaboration is now going on with the Espace Darja (Casablanca) where Nacera Belaza conducts trainings.
