Creation support 2022

What do we do?

Danseu Festival’s creation support programme was an impromptu result of the second edition of the festival in 2014, when we began to find out what it really means to ‘accompany an artist’.

Since then, we have worked alongside and followed the progress of an increasing number of artists and projects from various viewpoints, offering creation support, spaces for exploration, artists-in-residence programme, commissioning new projects, audiovisual works and helping artists in the transition from interpretation to creation. As a result, this support programme has become one of the most important elements of the festival and is already involved in the co-production of 3 performances this year.

Why do we do it?

Because at Danseu Festival, we want to make the artist, the profession and their needs the centre of attention so as to accompany them and help them grow. Because if we are to promote and encourage performances and ensure the profession continues, we need spaces for research and creation.

Who do we do it for?

We accompany artists who use bodies, dance or movement as a main resource in their works and projects and who propose a dialogue with open and unconventional spaces, or with a special focus on rural landscapes.

How do we do it?

By providing the tools and resources that artists and creators believe that are artistically important for their projects. We offer:

  • Research and/or creation residences
  • Commission of new projects or creations
  • Provision of spaces and unique and unusual surroundings for performance
  • Long-term support with co-productions
  • And much more. If you are interested in our creation support, get in touch.
