EurAsia VideoDance Contest 2020

EurAsia VideoDance Contest 2020

EURASIA VIDEODANCE CONTEST , for the edition 2020 entitled “Stay Home”, wants to be inspired by these days and so it want to push the participants to make their own home the stage of their creativity & performances, helping them to see a positive point in the task of “Staying Home”. The contest is open to dancers and choreographers of any origins.                                   

TOPIC & IDEA: Living within the walls of our house we can be inspired to explore these limited spaces that give vent to our lives. By observing our daily lives and playing with our bodies in the empty and non-empty spaces of the different rooms, we can create sequences of movement that, mixed with our moods and sensations arising from today’s events, we can give life to new creations and real stories: who can forget “Enter Achilles or Dead Dream Of Monochrome Men by the DV8” or “Rosas Danst Rosas by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker” and many more too!

This is a new EurAsia Event that this year want to help the EurAsia Students & Dancers who are fighting this battle against the COVID-19 like all of us.
