le pad

'La cabine' is a platform for emerging artist's practice, in performance, theatre, dance and fine art. This project was born from shared thoughts for the identity of the Daviers’ Culture Space (Espace Culturel Daviers), conducted by the Anger’s cultural department, the company LOBA, the Le COLLECTIF BLAST, and the company nathalie béasse. These three organisations are invested in the research & development of professional artists, concerned by the exchange and development of culture in the region and beyond. Each are engaged in their own way in the process of sharing with guest artists the working spaces, eventually leading to presentations of the artist's work.
Associated with COLLECTIF BLAST, the company nathalie béasse invites artists each month to use 'la cabine' studio, la cabine, located in the pad for experimentation, research and development, to work towards finishing a project and share the work with a work-in-progress presentation.
