Free entrance [limited number of seats]
In the occasion of the collaboration of Dance Days Chania with Dance House Lemesos in the context of the 11th Dance Days Chania festival, an open discussion will take place addressing the opportunities and challenges that new creators in the field of contemporary dance face. Both DDC and Dance House Lemesos support and promote emerging artists by devoting part of their programme in the research, residencies and artistic development of new creators and aiming at the reinforcement of a support platform.
The discussion will address issues such as: the quest for a personal artistic identity and language; the importance of research, feedback and work in progress presentations; the connection with the artistic community in a local and international level; the relationship between emerging artists and institutions; the opportunities for productions and the pressure for being productive; the artist as an inextricable part of the society.
Short comments/announcements will be made by Sofia Falierou (artistic director of Dance Days Chania/artist), Alexis Vassiliou (artistic director of Dance House Lemesos/artist) and Rodia Vomvolou (dramaturg/mentor) as well as by emerging artists that participate in the section of “New Creators in the City” and in Dance House Lemesos’ programme “Moving the New”. Τhe discussion will be moderated by Rodia Vomvolou.
