SPAZIO is a European formation and creation program for young dance makers, focused on the interdisciplinary character of the dance discipline. It offers young makers a one year cycle of 5 residencies in all partner countries, through which they can experience the specific expertise the artistic networks of the partners possess. During the sessions the SPAZIO participants follow workshops, lectures, discussions, are coached in creative processes and are challenged to create new work based on these experiences. At the same time the project opens up this network of artists and art works to the local communities of the partners, through open workshops, lectures, discussions and presentations, and invites them to get into a dialogue with all European artists and young makers involved. SPAZIO builds a strong and sustainable European network of partners for the education on dance creation, to ensure a continuous flow of new generations of choreographers, that have a broad and interdisciplinary perspective on contemporary dance and bring new work to their countries.
