The CCNR offers long-term amateur projects.

We want to engage participants to practice, explore, feel, and open up the imagination.

Write your haka!


Between dance and rugby, a project labeled
Cultural Olympiad Paris 2024

At the beginning of the Write your haka! project, there is the creation Acta est fabula. In this piece, Yuval Pick and his dancers work around the haka, a Maori ritual dance and song performed by the New Zealand rugby team before each match. It is a demonstration of the pride, strength and unity of a group.

This project, led by two dancers from the CCNR company, brings together rugby players and dancers to create their own haka through practical workshops. A festive and sporting choreography, celebrating union. During an initial phase from May 24 to June 28, 2023, a group of 8 young players from Rugby Club Rillieux created their first haka.

The Write your haka project continued from September 5 to 27, 2023, at the rate of one workshop a week, with dancers Noémie de Almeida Ferreira and Sofiane Distante, in partnership with the Fédération Léo Lagrange and the Centres sociaux de Rillieux-la-Pape. At the end of the workshops, the groups presented a participatory haka on September 29 at the Village Rugby, set up on Place Bellecour in Lyon, to coincide with the broadcast of Rugby World Cup 2023 matches.

In the spring of 2024, the project will be rolled out in new metropolitan areas, in Sathonay-Camp. It will also continue in Rillieux-la-Pape from June onwards.

Based on the Write your haka project, the Haka Ball is a festive, unifying event.

The dancers from the CCNR company are inviting audiences of all ages to join them in a grand participatory ball. Following a performance freely inspired by the traditional Maori haka, the dancers will guide you in learning choreographic gestures and phrases. Together, we’ll invent a celebratory dance for a fun and joyful moment of sharing.
