Exhibition | Tumult of waters, forms of stones
From 12 January to 17 February
Landscapes are the forms of the Earth, sculpted by erosion. The master builder is water, which creates broad paintings, where the colors are provided by plants, grasses and algae. For the rest, the rock is gray, the ice is white.
Aurore Bagarry gives an account of the natural arts through her own, photography.

"Tarot Trans" is a photographic project by Chilean artist Zaida González Ríos that appropriates the 22 major arcana of the Tarot by replacing the figures on the cards with non-standardized models, such as transgender people, migrants, people with disabilities, elderly people and others who correspond to the meaning of the assigned card. The relationship that is created between the tarot and these groups of people, through the medium itself, serves to break down the masks. Each card has extracted a set of identifying values for reflection that manifests itself through concepts such as: freedom, independence, power, creation, authority, wisdom, vindication, love, struggle, transcendence, victory and healing, among others.

"Drag is an art, a way of life. Drag queens and drag kings are artists, having fought, and still fighting today to be recognized... This exhibition retraces about a year and a half of shows of the association Broadway French, accompanied by some photos of the collective of artists La D.R.A.G. - Rigorous Direction of the Glamorous Approximations. These are many artists who allowed us to discover the world of drag, show photography, and especially extraordinary people." - Coralie, President of MultiRegard.

-RENNAISE DIRECTION OF THE GLAMOROUS APPROXIMATIONS
"It's better to laugh than to not care."
The D.R.A.G - *Direction Rennaise des Approximations Glamours* - presents its cabaret show in which four soloists follow each other and go wild, each one using his own artistic disciplines to propose a form where softly irreverent humor meets contemplative paintings, and where the stage becomes the ground of the absurdity of the world.
Screening and discussion | The Call to Dance
31 January, 6:30pm
A documentary by Diane Fardoun / Screenskin Collective
This documentary is part of a series on dances around the world, the first episode of which was made in Senegal. Through a succession of stories, it aims to capture the beauty of danced moments in the heart of the action, to reveal that precious moment when the tipping of consciousness gives way to instinct, identity, claims, traditions, escape... What is the source of this force that puts humans in motion? And quite simply, why do people dance?
Following the screening, the film's team will be present for a discussion with the audience.

Performance | COMPAGNIE C'HOARI

Pauline and Nolwenn consider each new creation as an adventure, a path towards a dance accessible to the greatest number of people, regardless of generation or social class. Their approach is to go and meet an "out of the ordinary" public in everyday common areas of social groupings. Their desire is to create a link, to build a bridge between contemporary dance and everyday life.
Choreography : Pauline Sonnic and Nolwenn Ferry
