The selected pairs of artists from each country will attend two workshops in spring and autumn 2020.

Core components of the project

The selected pairs of artists from each country will attend two workshops in spring and autumn 2020.

Micro and Macro Dramaturgies in Dance is a cooperation project not based on co-production, but on dramaturgical cooperation, discussion and supervision of the whole creative process.

For this project, the partners are announcing the first Open Call for Applications to participate in a series of workshops in 2020.

The project provides an opportunity to give artists from five partner countries (the Czech Republic, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden and Cyprus) the experience of leading European dance dramaturges - Guy Cools, Cools, Anne-Marije van den Bersselaar, Katalin Trencsenyi and Maja Hriešik. Each year selected pairs of artists from each country (a choreographer and their potential dramaturge) attend two 10-day workshops (in spring and autumn).

Each workshop will include a seminar with the participation of the wider art community and the last workshop in Prague will conclude with a final presentation of the outputs of the whole two-year project open to the general public.

Eligibility criteria, terms and conditions of the open call

Only professional artists are eligible for the project: mid-career choreographers who feel the need for further professional growth, and (potential) dance dramaturges who want to pursue this profession in the future. Choreographers can sign up together with the selected dramaturge as a pair, but also individually. The same applies to those interested in dance dramaturgy. Interest in exchanging experience in European cooperation and openness to new impulses are crucial.

The selection of creative pairs for the first year of the project will take place in the first week of December 2019 based on an Open Call in each partner country. The workshops will take place in Italy (Polverigi / Anghiari) from 14 – 24 April 2020 and in the Netherlands (Tilburg) in the second half of September 2020.

Those interested in participating in the Micro and Macro Dramaturgies in Dance project must guarantee their participation in both workshops in 2020 (14 – 24 April and second half of September 2020) as well as the final event of the project in Prague in mid-September 2021.

Project covers transport to the workshops, accommodation and meals during the workshops and fees.
