Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, in full agreement with Jean-Baptiste Gagnoux, Mayor of Dole, Jean-Pascal Fichère, President of the Grand Dole - Agglomeration Community, Jacques Pélissard, Mayor of Lons-le-Saunier, Patrick Elvezi, President of the Community Area Lons Agglomeration, Laurent Petit, President of the commune of the Hauts de Bienne, Christian Buchot, President of the community of communes Porte du Jura, Michel Francony, President of the community of communes Arbois Poligny Salins Cœur du Jura, Marie-Guite Dufay, President of the Regional Council Burgundy-Franche-Comté, Clément Pernot, President of the Departmental Council of the Jura and the community of communes Champagnole Nozeroy Jura, and Jean Piret, President of the Scenes of the Jura, gives its approval to the appointment of Cédric Fassenet to the direction of the Scenes of the Jura, on the unanimous proposal of the jury meeting on 9 May 2019.
Under the title «Faire corps», it proposes a multidisciplinary project whose artistic line, marked by a predilection for crossed forms, crosses the programming, the support given to artists and the actions towards the populations.
Six artists will be associated with the Scènes du Jura in support of a cooperative of artistic factories. They will be particularly involved in the implementation of artistic and cultural actions, pursuing those that have helped to forge the identity of the Scenes of the Jura, such as «Le Théâtre c'est (dans ta) classe» and «Les Scènes buissonnières», and experimenting with new formats and uses that invite everyone to value their skills and talents.
Cédric Fassenet is deputy director of Scènes du Jura after having been its administrator. He was previously deputy cultural attaché in Jakarta and then administrator of the national scene of Châlons-en-Champagne. He will take up his duties on 17 June 2019.
