The role of the Professional Integration Unit (CIP), is to optimize the students' integration into a professional working environment. It complements the Ecole Nationale Supérieure teaching by supporting the students as they come to leave the school.
Successful professional integration measure
The group graduation show – a highlight of the Cnac course.
The creation and diffusion of a graduation show is the highlight of the final year of the course.
It serves as a transition from student to professional status. This group performance is directed by a different professional performing arts artist, and is an important annual event in terms of artistic research into what is known as "new circus."
The creation of the show in Châlons-en-Champagne is followed by performances of the same, mainly in Paris at the Parc de la Villette, and in the Champagne-Ardenne region.
It enables these young artists to perform in front of large audiences as well as professionals and critics. As creative performers they are surrounded by a professional artistic and technical team in conditions that mimic their professional future.
A special partner of the Cnac, the Champagne-Ardenne regional council provides financial support for this stage of the professional integration unit.
Help with individual projects.
The Cnac encourages personal artistic support for its students through numerous collaborations, tutorials and partnerships with professionals, and artistic and cultural establishments.
This measure, begun at the beginning of the course, may be extended through to the professional integration year and beyond.
