Théâtre de la Ville Paris and terrain Company/Boris Charmatz, together with Hermès, are launching the call for applications for the seventh edition of DANSE ÉLARGIE 2022.
”During these strange pandemic times, have you often imagined yourself elsewhere? What about now? You have no idea anymore of what “normalcy” means? You would like to move, literally and figuratively? What if, this year, taking part in a dance competition were an excuse to get together and champion that which is dear to us? To experience our ideas? Our struggles? A space to present our hopes? To show the ineffable, the unheard, the ostentatious, the apparent, the understated?”
DANSE ÉLARGIE that competition. It is a call to artists from all over the world, from every field, without age limits, to introduce utterly original projects to be staged. To all those who birth art across the world, in the here and now, we invite you to be your moment, your era, your aspirations. To dare anything that dances, in the broadest sense of the term To invent future movements.
You will be seen by an enthusiastic audience experienced professionals a jury of high-flying artists. More than a competition, it is a rallying cry, a merry, unifying moment, a feast of ideas.
Two immovable rules:
- The piece has maximum 10 minutes
- A minimum of 3 performers onstage
The suggestion of the call is to expand formats, to remove them from patterns:
”Pull away from the habour, aim for the high sea. Plumb the depths of your mind and ideas. Begin to be free.”
Where and when?
The competition will be held on 25 and 26 June 2022 at Théâtre de la Ville – Espace Cardin – Paris.
