About FORCE MAJEURE:
From September 2007 – May 2008, Chez Bushwick will offer ten residencies to young choreographers from Austria, Belgium, Chile, Croatia, Finland, France, Holland, Norway, Romania, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States, through an innovative new program called FORCE MAJEURE. These periods of creative development will culminate in FREE public presentations of new performance, while catalyzing international dialogue between the dance communities of NYC and abroad. This program is designed to create discourse about new choreography, while ensuring that future generations of dance artists – and dance viewers - remain active and informed about the global dance community.
Support for Chez Bushwick's 2007-2008 is supported, in part, by the Cultural Development Fund from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
Microsystéme's showing in the United States has been made possible by Chez Bushwick, a creative residency at the Byrd Hoffman Water Mill Center, and le Consulat de France à New-York.
