SPAZIO, a European network for dance creation - open call

SPAZIO is a European formation and creation program for young dance makers, which focuses on the relation between dance and other art disciplines as a way to question, reflect upon and strengthen the discipline of dance. Each year six young choreographers will be selected to take part in the one year programme of five residencies. The participants will get an overview of different themes of the dance creative process, will be challenged to question themselves as makers and will experience what different interdisciplinary themes and elements can mean to them.

SPAZIO participants are taught by professional European choreographers and artists from different disciplines. They follow workshops, lectures, discussions, are coached in creative processes and are challenged to create new work based on these experiences. At the same time the project opens up its network of artists and art works to the local communities of the partner cities, through open workshops, lectures, discussions and presentations, inviting the community to enter into a dialogue with all European artists and young makers involved.

There is no inscription fee for SPAZIO. All activities, travel, accommodation and Per Diems at all residencies are provided by the organization.

SPAZIO participants don't receive any fee for taking part in the programme.

SPAZIO is a collaboration project between the following European institutes: the International Choreographic Arts Centre (ICK) - Amsterdam, the Netherlands; CSC DanceHouse – Bassano del Grappa, Italy; Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance – Zagreb, Croatia; Art Stations Foundation – Poznan, Poland. SPAZIO is supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union.
