The new edition of the Biennale College Danza includes two international calls dedicated to young dancers and to new choreographers, as set forth in the project by Director Marie Chouinard. The calls are now online and will remain open as follows:
- the call for dancers until 16th January 2019.
- the call for choreographers until 23rd January 2019.
DANCERS: aimed at a maximum of 15 young dancers aged 18 to 25, with a solid training and previous qualifying experience, required to participate in a 13-week intensive programme (1st April > 30th June 2019) with daily training sessions held by internationally renowned teachers.
In the final phase of the programme, the dancers will be involved in a new creation developed for them by choreographer Alessandro Sciarroni which, together with the final results of the project Set and Reset/Reset of the Trisha Brown Dance Company, will be presented to the public in a single event of the 13th International Festival of Contemporary Dance.
CHOREOGRAPHERS: aimed at new choreographers, aged 32 and under, for the production of an original 20-minute work. The selection will designate up to 3 choreographers.
The 3 selected choreographers will be involved from 14th May to 30th June 2019; from 21st May to 30th June 2019 they will work with 7 professional dancers for a period of 6 weeks, ending with a public performance of each of the 3 original creations during a single event as part of the 13th International Festival of Contemporary Dance.
