DANCE HIGHWAYS is a European project that brings together six contemporary dance partners the L’espace ASDC in Palermo, the Fundacja Rozwoju Teatru “NOWA FALA” in Warsaw, the THEATER DER KLÄNGE in Düsseldorf, Dansearena Nord in Tromsø, La Fundicion in Bilbao and the Galerie Chorégraphique in Carcassonne.
This international project, supported by the European Union within the framework of Erasmus +, will implement until September 2022 a European calendar of transnational mobilities, with the aim of sharing good practices between experts and offering ongoing professional training workshops for contemporary dancers.
The objective of the project is to support and improve the quality and accessibility of Arts and Culture, by consolidating the cross professional relationship: Art-Education-Health and Integration. Dance Highways thus aims to strengthen a synergy between project proposals and structures in an artistic, cultural and social context.
From February 2021 to September 2022, five two-day transnational meetings and a total of five five-day workshops will be organised to, respectively, bring together twelve international experts and carry out innovative artistic experiences involving 18 professional dancers from the DANCE HIGHWAYS consortium, during the 25 days of workshops. In addition, the six partners will generate international festivals and various dissemination programs, which will generate opportunities to share the fruits of this process with a wide audience.
For the six partners of DANCE HIGHWAYS, it is a question of finding answers linked to the crisis caused by the pandemic both for the choreographic sector and for vulnerable populations, through the range of tools provided by contemporary dance practices.
Another workshop was held in April/May 2022 in Tromsø, Norway, as part of the Varscenefest Festival:
