OPEN CALL for performances – dance in the public space

‘Dance in the city’ is a yearly contemporary dance festival in urban landscapes organised by Compagnie Irene K. For the 13th edition, the festival is looking for high quality creations as well as hip-hop/street dance productions.

‘Dance in the city’ is organised every year in different cities spread in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. Façades, yards, streets, bridges, ruins, … are the sets for short contemporary dance performances. The aim is to allow the audience as well as the inhabitants to reach a new approach of the chosen specific sites. The choreography will animate the area and will either develop or contrast the architecture of a city. The transfiguration of the spaces through the movement and the music will facilitate the relationship between contemporary art, architecture and the public.

The artists / groups who apply must adapt their work (max. 15-20 minutes) to an outside urban space. Choreographers must be able to create appropriate responses to this original environment.
