Tribute by Frédéric Mitterrand, Minister of Culture and Communication, to Odile Duboc.

With Odile Duboc, she is a great lady of the choreographic scene who
one of the pioneers of French contemporary dance. Her
many performances and operas are bridges
thrown between movement, music and art.

She was a creator, passionate about teaching and a true leader
the destiny of his first company,
Contre Jour, then that of the Centre chorégraphique national de Franche
County. Thanks to her, thanks to these unusual objects that she invites to manipulate, the
dance has become an open field for sensory improvisation of
artists. Another way, even more flexible and playful, to think and
to feel this art so enchanting.
