India and France have in common a great tradition of dance. With about 80 companies touring regularly around the world, the French contemporary dance scene is known for its diversity and quality. In India, while the traditional dance forms are highly developed and very well established, a contemporary dance scene calls into question the traditional codes, giving birth to a new choreographic vocabulary. The first attempts of confrontation between classical Indian dance and Western contemporary dance date back to the days of Tagore. Since then, the evolution of this form of expression followed the personal trajectories of choreographers and artists, especially those who have traveled abroad and found, in the observation of other practices, a new creative inspiration. These new expressions have captivated audiences all around the world. Wishing to highlight the artistic trends from these two countries, “DanSe DialogueS” was created to initiate meetings and open new fields for the development of this art form in India.
