Association founded in 1999, promotes visual arts and contemporary dance in the Normandy region.
'2angles', an association founded in 1999, promotes visual arts and contemporary dance in the region. In 2010, 2angles joined the network of cultural centres supported by the Normandy region.
One of its main missions is to receive artists and dance companies through its residencies
programme.These residencies result in exhibitions of the work of visual artists and public presentations of the work-in-progress where dance companies are concerned.
The activities of ‘2angles’ mostly take place in the town centre of Flers. Located in what was once a dye factory, the association disposes of 400m2 in which to house its three exhibition spaces, workshops, offices and a library.
In addition, ‘2angles’ has access to a stage and a rehearsal studio which are made available by the town of Flers. '2angles' is the place to be if you are interested in discovering, creating, experimenting,
researching and sharing. It creates bridges between visual arts and dance, the artists, the public, and local enterprise.
The association named 'Le RAVE (Reseau des Arts Vivants Electriques -a contemporary music network)’ is located in the same building. The proximity between the two associations creates regular
Here, artists, sculptors, choreographers, painters, dancers, musicians and managers frequently meet.
The team of '2angles' also develops projects with local partners such as schools, hospitals, prisons,
associations or other cultural centres.

A call for applications for visual arts and dance residencies is announced every two years. A process of selection then follows.The selection jury for visual arts and contemporary dance is composed of
our partners and professionals from both artistic domains.
In terms of content, a special importance is granted to artistic process, research, and innovation. There are no imposed themes or media. However, the time spent in Flers should be conceived of as an immersion in this unique environment, and the opportunity for an encounter with a town and its
When selecting dance companies, their affinities with the field of visual art will be considered. When two projects of equal interest are in competition, the project which best takes the regional dimension into consideration will be priviliged.
obligations of the residents
The project proposal must be compatible with the available resources and the requirements made by ‘2angles’. Each visual arts residency results in an exhibition. Each dance residency results in a public showing of the work-in-progress.
During the residencies, the artists and dance companies are expected to participate in meetings,
conferences and other encounters with our public. These solicitations will take into account the artists’ availability. These events will be organised to the satisfaction of both parties, in order not to interfere with the advancement of the artistic project.
Should the mediation projects planned exceed 8 hours of audience presence, a complementary contract will be redacted, in agreement with the artists and dance companies, in order to take into account the required supplement of work.
