The performer duo composed of circus artist Yoann Bourgeois and choreographer Rachid Ouramdane will be taking over the direction of the Centre Chorégraphique National in Grenoble, on January 1, 2016. They will replace Jean-Claude Gallotta, who has been at the head of the Centre since its founding in 1984.

Renowned for their experimental style and elaborate crossing between disciplines, the two are hoping to transform the Centre into a space allowing for collaborative work in dialogue with societal transformations and issues. They also hope to attract young generations of artists and performers, as well as artists subscribing to a variety of aesthetic preferences and styles.
