Choreographic training program

ARTISTIC DIRECTOR: ISMAEL IVO
 
Having successfully completed the first creative cycle, which explored all the areas of choreography (research and experimentation, creation and production, presentation, fruition and critical analysis), Choreographic Collision now takes a new course, enhanced by new proposals.
 
The first phase of the Project will be developed in strict relation to the activities of the 7th International Festival of Contemporary Dance of the Biennale di Venezia.
From May 25th to June 12th, 2010 a group of choreographers and university students specializing in literary criticism and/or the performing arts will have the opportunity to participate as a living organism in the rehearsals, performances and meetings with the artists in the program of the 7th International Festival of Contemporary Dance.
 
Two workshops will be held in the research and experimentation program dedicated to choreographers. Two exceptional teachers, exclusively for Choreographic Collision: Marie Chouinard and Ismael Ivo.
 
The choreographers will be supported in their activity by the participants in a Critical Analysis Workshop led by Stefano Tomassini, and addressed to university students/scholars specializing in literary criticism and/or the performing arts, who may earn academic credits thanks to the collaboration with the Università Ca' Foscari in Venice.
 
Choreographic Collision is therefore a unique and unmissable opportunity for growth and experimentation dedicated to young choreographers and dance scholars, with a training project based on dialogue, research, stimulation and interaction with all the personalities at the 7th International Festival of Contemporary Dance (May 26th > June 12th, 2010) organized by the Biennale di Venezia and directed by Ismael Ivo.
