The C/U team operates as a group of expert freelancers and is constituted anew before each edition, each time with a slightly different staff. Over the years, however, there have been those who join the team every year – whether in the same positions or expanding or changing their contributions to the Festival. The team members come from different sectors, but many of them are artists or scientists. We are also pleased to see that for many, connection with C/U has become the beginning of an adventure or even a career in dance. Below – this year’s C/U team.
