Open Call Video Dance DDC12

The international contemporary dance festival “Dance Days Chania”, continues empowered and awakened investing in human more than ever, in a peculiar time period for life and arts.

For this year, we are looking for groundbreaking video dance works with strong, vivid imagery content. Projects/art works that enhance or challenge the approach or notion of choreographing for the camera.

Dance Days Chania is being organized by Syn-Kinisi Association of Expressive Dance since 2011 with volunteer work of its members, having as a co-organizer the Municipality of Chania. In past editions the Region of Crete and KEPPEDICH-CMA have been co-organizers. The last few years, DDC receives the support of national and international institutions and organizations (J. F. Costopoulos Foundation, Flux Laboratory Athens, American Dance Abroad etc.) as well as embassies. In 2017 Stavros Niarchos Foundation has been major donor of the festival. Finally, for some editions the festival has received the financial support of the Ministry of Culture.

DDC has received the EFFE Label 2017-2018 & 2019-2021 certification by the European Organization EFA.

Its program consists of performances, workshops, site specific projects, the Video Dance section, the “New creators and Public space” section, lectures and more.
