Biennale College Danza 2023
Call for dancers
In his third year as Director of Biennale Danza, Wayne McGregor will be leading the Biennale College Dance in 2023. This unique learning and study programme is designed to equip 16 young dancers with new skills, knowledge and abilities in their chosen career path; nurtured by inspiring world-class teachers, coaches, choreographers and industry professionals. Through high quality technical, creative, improvisatory and performance experiences the 2023 cohort will immerse themselves in an intensive three-month programme that will include the re-staging of a seminal dance works by legendary movement artist and Golden Lion Simone Forti; the exploration and evolution of a work by the boundary breaking choreographer William Forsythe; as well as collaborating on a new commission made exclusively for the Biennale College by choreographic artist Xie Xin.
Biennale College dancers will also collaborate with 2 emerging choreographers (see separate call-out) who will each present their own short creations during the 17th International Festival of Contemporary Dance of La Biennale di Venezia.
Dancers selected for this programme will have access to individual mentoring, masterclasses and talks and will attend the international performances by companies invited to Biennale Dance 2023.
