The 16th International Festival of Contemporay Dance is titled Boundary-less and will run in Venice from 22-31 July. “Isn’t art making, the very act of breaking boundaries, borders and barriers? Isn’t it a way of re-imagination and a new way of thinking?” asked himself director Wayne McGregor, the British choreographer at his second year as artistic director, while presenting a programme full of new artists.
Among the protagonists of this edition are the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement Saburo Teshigawara, the Silver Lion awardee Rocío Molina, the vogue dance of Trajal Harrel; the Gauthier Dance company featuring choreographies by Aszure Barton, Sidi Larbi Chekaoui, Sharon Eyal, Marco Goecke, Marcos Morau, Hofesh Shechter and Sasha Waltz; the meditative dance of Humanhood; the intercultural Australian company Marrugeku, Mozart's Requiem revisited by A.I.M by Kyle Abraham, and the electronic musician Jlin.
Not only dance shows: the Festival will also include a photographic exhibition by Indigo Lewin, a scenographic media installation by Tobias Gremmler, the grand ball that Blanca Li made using Virtual Reality, and the art film by Tacita Dean featuring the last appearance of Merce Cunningham and his company.
Furthermore, the 16 young dancers of the Biennale College Danza, who will take part in the programme with a site specific performance created for them by Saburo Teshigawara; two new creations will be presented by Matteo Carvone and Edit Domoszlai, selected for the section Biennale College Coreografi; as a tribute to Merce Cunningham, the historic Event that the American choreographer created in 1972 for St. Mark's Square will have a new production over floating stage platforms.
