Danse Élargie is open to any artist, regardless of its line of work, who is tempted by a new scenic adventure. To apply, two rules only: imagine a piece of 10 minutes maximum, involving at least 3 performers on stage. More than 360 projects were submitted by artists from the dance, theatre, visual arts, music and digital art.
Favoring projects designed specifically for the context of the competition, the selection retained 20 projects, involving approximately 150 participants. The idea is, by bringing together artists from different horizons, to open a meeting and exchange space between various forms and scenic languages for contemporary creation : a time designed more for collective sharing than for competition.
If any competition requires a jury, the Danse Élargie jury reflects the image of the project itself: it is composed of international artists, from different generations and chosen for the quality of their vision and their openness to new forms and artistic disciplines.
This jury will present, at the end of the second day, 3 prizes of 10,000 €, 7000 € and 4500 €, with the initial objective of supporting the completion of the project presented within Danse Élargie.
At the same time, a jury composed of spectators will be gathered : it will be responsible for symbolically awarding the audience prize.
For this new artistic adventure, imagined and co-organized by the Dancing Museum and Théâtre de la Ville, la Fondation d’Entreprise Hermès is our committed partner. Danse Élargie also receives support from the SACD.
