Call for applications for a new international choreographic creation

Biennale Danza 2023


The Dance Department promotes a multi-year programme aimed at supporting the production (or co-production) of new works by international choreographers or dance companies. In order to participate in the selection, it is necessary to propose an original choreographic project (which has never premiered either in studio or full form).

Modalities of participation

The documentation to participate in the selection - which must be submitted no later than 19 September 2022 via an online application form - consists of:

  • Description of the artistic project in English (max. 1 A4 page, front only), specifying any partners and their contribution to the coproduction
  • Link to video of 5-10 minutes max (which may include, by way of example, short dance clips, choreographic draft, discursive/explanatory part in English: anything that can best express the concept of the project).

Age limit: up to 35 years
Incomplete applications will be automatically excluded.


The selected project will be supported by the Biennale with a contribution of up to € 30,000.00.

The Venice Biennale will also cover the following expenses:

· artistic cachet for the Venice debut;
· travel and accommodation expenses of the choreographer or the company for the debut in Venice;
· expenses related to the technical rider for the Venice debut

After the selection, a previsional budget of the project will be requested.

The performance will make its debut (world premiere) as part of the Biennale Danza 2023.

The selected choreographer or company will sign an agreement with La Biennale di Venezia guaranteeing their availability and the feasibility of the project for its debut in Venice according to the schedule agreed upon with the Artistic Direction.


The Artistic Director of the Dance Department, Wayne McGregor, will make the selection at his sole discretion, based on the materials submitted.

The outcome of the selection will be announced on 10 October 2022.
