Aider à la reconversion des danseurs

Abstract : Since 2006, Assurance Formation des Activités du Spectacle (AFDAS – Entertainment Training Insurance) has offered “help with re-training” aimed specifically at dancers and circus performers. The programme makes funding for training available to people who are no longer able to take seasonal work, or whose vocational-training rights may have ceased to exist. The article looks at the manner in which “re-training” those categories of artists has become a public problem. Identifying institutional bearers of the cause that work towards putting that cause on the agenda, the article emphasises the gradual de-confinement and de-specification of the topic. In parallel, the arguments that underlie the discourse relating to help that those artists ought to receive move from a “remunerative” logic, which aims at giving more weight to the short career of professionals who are seen as essential to the artistic life of a nation, to an “assistance-based” logic, where it is a matter of sanitary risks that may be inherent in professions that ceaselessly make calls upon the body.
