Repères, cahier de danse is a 32-page twice-yearly journal which comes out in mid-April and mid-November.
Since March 2003, the Val-de-Marne CDC has made the choice to publish a journal which thinks and talks dance, focusing on issues involved in dancers’ work. Interviews, texts by artists and researchers, analyses of works and workshops, historical studies, sociological studies and other approaches and subjects fill its pages.
Repères, cahier de danse is a new form of the journal Adage, which had been published up until 1995 by the Val-de-Marne Biennale nationale de danse.
The journal discusses many different subjects and provides space to researchers and artists from infinite horizons. Members of the editorial committee come primarily from outside the CDC team, and the readership covers every aspect of the world of dance. Content aims to provide readers with information and tools for understanding, thinking and communicating dance.
The Teachers and public relations people use Repères, cahier de dance in their outreach work. Artists see it as a way to pursue their thinking in another form; the public, and those working and doing research on dance delve into new questions and new ways to understand choreographic creation.
