The “E-Motional: rethinking dance” programme is currently launching its first European call for projects in the frame of E-Motional/ ArtistNe(s)t Residencies and MAP – sharing of processes strands, to be developed in 2014-2015. As the title shows, the guiding idea of the programme and of the residencies and research strand is re-thinking of artistic practices and formats and finding the right language in development of new artistic contents in the field of contemporary dance.
“E-Motional: rethinking dance” is an artist and manager-driven initiative, dedicated to exchange, research and artistic collaboration, co-production and touring, and audience development at European level. The proposed activities include: reflection-oriented encounters for groups of dance professionals, interdisciplinary artistic residencies, sharing formats for artistic processes, co-production of new works and performance programming, professional development opportunities, and dedicated programmes for general public, including regular dance classes, movie screenings, artist talks and lectures. The new E-Motional programme is born from the experience of the E-Motional Bodies & Cities project developed between 2011-2013.
The present E-Motional call for proposals has a multidisciplinary profile and includes opportunities for dance professionals as well as professionals coming from all movement-based or connected disciplines from the entire EU (visual arts, new media, music, theatre, etc.) in Bucharest, Riga, Porto, Bacau & Luxembourg. Deadlines for application are February 10, 2014 – for residencies and April 10, 2014 for MAP – sharing of processes.
“E-Motional: rethinking dance” is created and organised by Gabriela Tudor Foundation (Bucharest), as project leader, in collaboration with the Association of Professional Dance Choreographers of Latvia (Riga), Fabrica de Movimentos (Porto) and “George Apostu” Cultural Centre (Bacau), in association with Trois CL Choreographic Centre (Luxembourg) and “George Enescu” National Museum (Bucharest). Project developed with support from the Culture programme of the European Union.
