Montpellier Danse (Montpellier Dance Festival)
The Montpellier Dance festival has been held annually since 1981 in the Mediterranean coast city of Montpellier in Southern France as one of the world's leading dance festivals. The festival was established after the late choreographer Dominique Bagouet (1951-92, http://www.lescarnetsbagouet.org/) assumed the position of artistic director of the National Choreography Centre (CCN) of Montpellier. Ever since, the festival has been run in close association with CCN. After Bagouet's death, the Centre came under the directorship of choreographer Mathilde Monnier in 1994 and the festival has continued to develop and expand. The Dance Centre "The Agora" facility where both the festival and CCN are based is a historically important 14th century monastery that has been renovated to include a theater and several studio spaces and other facilities designed to fulfill the aims of providing space for the creation and performance of works, building audience, receiving artists and offering them residencies in consolidated programs for the support of dance.
