Kick off platform for emerging choreographers
From July 2016, an intercontinental encounter of young choreographers, is being an integral part of the international dance festival KoresponDance in Zdar nad Sazavou in the Czech Republic.
Fillimit wishes to be a creative meeting platform encouraging the participants to break out of their usual local circuits, set new collaborations and launch an idea of a new work.
Choreographers can participate as singles, being open to set a new collaboration duet with a colleague, or bring with them a working partner (dancer, choreographer, musician, actor etc.).
Project drafts formulated during this short meeting will be presented at the round table shared among the artists, the international FILLIMIT partners, visiting professionals, journalists and interested audience.
The festival is held under the auspices of MUDr. Jiří Běhounek, the President of the Vysočina Region
Dear KoresponDance Visitors,
I fully resonate with dance masters who say that dance is a form of communication between the body and the soul and that it can express what words cannot. Dance helps us to communicate with others without uttering a single word in a foreign language; no translation is necessary as dance can be understood across all age groups.
I would like to wish to all participants at this year’s International Festival of Contemporary Dance and Physical Theatre, KoresponDance, as well as to all visitors and guests, an enjoyable and unique experience that allows them to encounter beauty, emotions and exceptional art full of distinction and expression. I am very happy that Vysočina has become a stage for this extraordinary project and that the Vysočina Region is its proud sponsor.
MUDr. Jiří Běhounek, President of the Vysočina Region
