After a period in which the notion of the group was put to the test, the Relevant Company has decided to place it at the heart of its new creation, STAND OUT.

The Relevant Company is itself a group of five choreographers who think, work and create together: we’ve been experimenting and living the group since we started out. It’s a theme that resonates with us.

That’s why we first explored it with the piece UPSHOT, which dealt with the behaviour of the individual in relation to the group, particularly through the notions of exclusion, inclusion and marginalisation that can be experienced within a society. In this new creation, we want to explore the relationships between individuals within a group, their interactions, and highlight the notion of individuality within the collective.

Our experience of co-creation has made us aware of the richness that each dancer brings to the group, and that’s what we want to show on stage.

The Relevant Company,
Associate artist of the CCNR 

The members of Relevant Dance Company are all from Lyon. They decided to form their own company in 2016 after taking part in “Ba-bel 8.3”, a participatory project led by the Maison de la Danse de Lyon and choreographed by Abou Lagraa. They are interested in exploring other dance styles and worlds, motivated and driven by the creative energy of hip-hop. Their aim is to address human and social issues, all the while challenging and questioning contemporary society.
