The “CLASH! When classic and contemporary dance collide and new forms emerge” project will wrap up with the final conference The CLASH! project: conclusions as a starting point ” on February 17th at 16:00 (CET) on and at @clashprojecteu with the participation of the six partners involved in the project co-funded by the Creative Programme of the European Union:

  • Balletto di Roma (IT)
  • Sapienza University (IT)
  • Derida Dance Center / Art link Foundation (BG)
  • Polish Dance Theatre (PL)
  • 420PEOPLE (CZ)
  • Companhia de Dança de Almada (PT)

After the intense journey through dance that the “CLASH! International Festival. The Hybrid in Dance Models, between Classic and Contemporary” was, the time has come for thinking over the events and brainstorm about future paths.

The conference will once again make the “virtual meeting” between different countries and European partners possible. The meaning of the project for all partnering organizations will be articulated through dialogue and QA sessions that will bring them even closer by sharing their experience.

The event will give the opportunity to sneak a peek into difficulties, challenges and highlights of the project as well as open a discussion about the future that the CLASH! Project will bring.

Given the dynamic global changes, we would take a deeper look at the dancer’s training and creative process, focusing on new paths and challenges for tomorrow’s dancers.

Furthermore, one could not fail to recognize the elephant in the room. How did the Coronavirus affect the overall process and the Audience development activities in particular? A deeper look would be taken into the process of shifting between the “live“and the “digital” in terms of ways of coping, that would deploy into pointing out what should be recognized as a “keeper” for the future.

Last but not least, the conference will tackle the strengths and weaknesses met during the realization of the project revealing the future challenges as a part of the management and communication activities.
