This year our international call-out for dancers generated 416 applications. Twenty-one talented dancers were selected to take part in the exciting and challenging three-month College programme. The centre of these workshops has been the opportunity for participants to take a deep dive into the creative processes of choreographers Crystal Pite and Wayne McGregor, alongside experiencing the challenges of performing in repertory works and creating new works with their choreographer colleagues. Catch the Biennale College dancers in action in the Arsenale, as they perform McGregor’s FAR, Pite’s Solo Echo, and the six new works by the College choreographers.
