La Biennale di Venezia / The international call for young dancers and new choreographers

La Biennale di Venezia, chaired by Paolo Baratta, announces the new edition of the Biennale College – Dance with the launch of the international call on the website, which opens January 13th and will remain open through February 14th for the Project for dancers and through March 15th for the Project for choreographers.

The international call is addressed to dancers, and for the first time, to choreographers, introducing the art of choreography among the disciplines of the Biennale College – Dance, following the rigorous and experimental approach of the newly-appointed Director Marie Chouinard.

Project for Dancers

A maximum of 15 dancers between the ages of 18 and 23 will be selected for the project, which will engage them for 3 months – from April 4th to June 26th – in a programme that integrates training and creation.

Project for Choreographers

Three choreographers will be selected to elaborate three original creations lasting approximately 12 minutes, to be performed during the 11th International Festival of Contemporary Dance.

The complete official text of the international call for the Biennale College – Dance 2017 is available online at:

Biennale College is an innovative and complex experience that engages all the Departments of the Biennale di Venezia – to encourage young talents, offering them the opportunity to work side by side with the masters to develop “creations”.
