Press Release DDC11

11th International Contemporary Dance Festival “Dance Days Chania” | 18.07 – 01.08.2021

In order to keep the embodied memory active, for the 11th edition of Dance Days Chania we have designed and proposed a program of performances and workshops dedicated to the intelligence of movement.

Our proposals for this year’s program invest in the search for authenticity, intimacy, physicality. To the person, dancer, student, artist, who dares to dream, to be awake and present. To the ones who do not consider art a luxury, but an imperative need for a healthy, imaginative life; the only way to manage the crisis.

The planning of this year’s event includes 12 performances, 9 workshops, “New Creators in the City” section, a 2-day Video Dance tribute, discussions and other events in the city. The 11th Dance Days Chania will be realized from 18.07 to 01.08.2021 taking for another year all the necessary measures to protect a safe event, interactive and participatory.

Dance Days Chania is organized by Syn-Kinisi Association of Expressive Dance with volunteer work of its members since 2011. The 11th Dance Days Chania festival is co-organized by the Region of Crete, the Municipality of Chania – KEPPEDICH-CMA, and funded by the Ministry of Culture. It receives the kind support of J.F. Costopoulos Foundation, the Italian Institute in Athens, the Embassy of Austria in Athens and the Cultural Services of the Cyprus Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports. Other collaborators are the Ephorate of Antiquity of Chania and the School Committee of the 6th Secondary school, 4th High school, Evening Secondary school and Evening High school of Chania.

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