A call dedicated to video-dance

The call for entries for the “Premio Roma Danza” is now online and, as of 2018, will also include a section reserved for so-called “video dance”. The “Premio Roma Danza” is an international competition that was founded in 2001 under the High Patronage of the President of the Republic and takes place from July 8th to 12th. Three years ago, an award for video dance was instituted with the intention of giving visibility to new talents from all over the world who are engaged in digital choreography.

The competing works will be judged by an international jury, composed of high-profile artistic figures from the panorama of international dance, criticism, choreographic and audiovisual production. Due to the Covid-19 emergency, the 2021 edition of the “Premio Roma Danza” will focus particularly on video dance, with particular attention to interpretation, and will be articulated in its various forms of communication: Dance Movie, Published Dance Production, SmARTphone Dance.
