deadline for applications: 18 March 2014

As of last year, la Biennale di Venezia has renewed its mission in all of its fields. In addition to its work to promote knowledge among the general public (Exhibitions and Festivals) it has introduced a strategic programme for the training of young artists. Known as the Biennale College, this programme is already underway in the fields of Dance, Music, Theatre, and Cinema. To encourage young talents, offering them the opportunity to work side by side with the masters to develop “creations”: this is the spirit of the Biennale College, a well-appointed bridge that allows young people who wish to engage in one of the arts to do so in the finest conditions that an international institution can offer.
For the year 2014, Biennale College will pursue an increasingly intense integration between all of its disciplines, with the promotion of inter-sectorial projects. Thus the performing arts sectors – Dance, Music, Theatre, Cinema – will hold some of their activities in the spaces of the Corderie dell’Arsenale, stimulated in their engagement by the 14th International Architecture Exhibition.
Biennale College - Dance 2014 is open to dancers between the ages of 18 and 35 with consolidated experience in the techniques of contemporary dance.
The project will include an educational and training programme with contemporary dance teachers, and the formation of groups composed of dancers led by a guest choreographer. These are courses leading to the creation of short choreographic works to be presented as part of the 9th International Contemporary Dance Festival of the Biennale di Venezia.
All the original creations will be the result of the residency of choreographers and dancers in Venice.
The activities to be held at the Arsenale will have their own rules which will be announced in due time.
The schedule will include: mornings: classes in contemporary technique; afternoons: the creative phase with the choreographer.
Application deadline for the selection: March 18th, 2014.
The selection results will be announced on or before April 3rd, 2014.
