Danse Élargie is an international competition open to artists of all nationalities and ages, irrespective of their principal or original artistic discipline (visual arts, theatre, dance, music, architecture, design…). The competition is open to all forms of dance, in the broadest possible definition of the term. Multidisciplinary projects are both accepted and encouraged.
Projects entered for the competition must feature at least 3 performers onstage, and must not exceed 10 minutes in length. Projects conceived specifically for the competition are given preference, though this element is not an obligation.
A jury will select a number of finalists whose projects will be shown to the public on 25 and 26 June 2022 at the Théâtre de la Ville-Espace Cardin in Paris.
Each finalist will receive a fixed sum of 2000€ as a contribution towards the costs incurred by their participation in the competition (accommodation, travel, studio rental…).
Finalists are then eligible for a number of competition prizes (ranging 3000-8000€) and for follow-up residencies with taking place between July 2022 and July 2023.
