L-EST, set in the Bourgogne Franche-Comté region, is an initiative launched by three cultural structures, the Aire Urbaine Belfort-Montbéliard – VIADANSE – Centre chorégraphique national de Bourgogne Franche-Comté in Belfort, MA scène nationale – Pays de Montbéliard and Le Granit scène nationale de Belfort – uniting their strengths in its service. Focusing on creating an open, innovative project dedicated to contemporary scenic activities, they are creating a European Pole of Creation for live and transmedia performing arts: a transdisciplinary space for confrontation, experimentation, scouting and clearing out on a European scale, working with artistic staffs, professionals, researchers, players in the fields of creation and research … With L-EST, the three structures intend to – together – support French and invited artists, offering audiences the opportunity to discover new artistic shores and to experience new things in this moment, taking into account social and artistic transformations, notably those linked to digital practices. Transmedia offers us an entirely new playing field: artists, institutions and audiences, establishing a new relationship to various creative sectors and audiences, replacing the way we tell each other stories.
