The Clash! Project aims to explore the clash between the familiar and the different, the routine and the unusual, the classical and the contemporary. Six European organizations from Bulgaria, Italy, Portugal, Poland and the Czech Republic take part in the project. Following discussion panels, dance workshops and research workshops in all partners’ countries, an overall assessment will be prepared to help develop new strategies in training and training methods and to develop new audiences.
