Contemporary Dance Night (CDN) 2018 > Call for Choreographers (Egypt)

In Arabic 

CDN Team has a call for choreographers from Egypt, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom in order to present proposals of new creations which will be developed through a residency of two months in Egypt.

“Contemporary Dance Night” (CDN) is an independent contemporary dance event that aims to familiarize and develop the art of contemporary dance in Egypt. It is the organisers' way to express ourselves, young artists, within the current challenging political, social, and cultural context and conflict.

Six performances (three non-Egyptian and three Egyptian) will be selected and produced for Contemporary Dance Night 2018, which will take place in Cairo Alexandria and Upper Egypt, between October 10th and December 10th 2018.

International artists (only): 

- All expenses are covered for foreign artists: a round trip flight, pocket money, accommodation and a modest production grant to produce the piece. 

- Foreign artists are required to produce their pieces with Egyptian dancers only. 

- Auditions will be held at Ezzat Ezzat Contemporary Dance Studio (EECDS) on the 13th of October 2014, for the choreographers to meet the Egyptian dancers. 

- International artists will be accommodated in single rooms at Ezzat Ezzat Contemporary Dance Studio (EECDS) (http://www.eedancestudio.com/CMS.asp?ID=66) 

- Rehearsals will take place at EECDS between 10:00 AM and 10:00 PM: a schedule will be coordinated between the selected artists. 

- Assistants will be available to assist the artists to manage their residency and production during the whole period. 

 Deadline: 29 March 2018
