Dance Days Chania strengthens the transnational artistic residency and for 2023 collaborates with the Dance House Lemesos (Cyprus), forming an artistic bridge for young artists between the two countries. In the framework of this collaboration, a call is being made by both institutions through which 1 artist from each country will be selected. The artists will be hosted in Chania in July 2023 for 7 days when the co-creation of a project will begin with the first presentation taking place at the 13th Dance Days Chania festival. The artists will then travel to Limassol for another 7 days in September and will share the development of their research at the Open House Festival of the Dance House Lemesos. The presentations of the project will take place with free admission for the public.
This is an expanded approach to the concept of residency, which focuses on highlighting the ‘footprint’ that such artistic partnerships, cultural conversations and social contexts leave on the venue.
During the open call, applications are accepted from artists active in the field of choreography based in Greece and Cyprus. The two organisations will select 2 artists (1 from each country).
