The purpose of the series directed by Natalia Casorati is to promote young choreographers from our Region‚ by creating a project divided into three different sectors aimed at enhancing the artistic quality of the performances‚ contributing economically to the new creations and helping our local realities circulate outside of the region and internationally. Each project is also attentive to the rapport with the audience‚ so the performances are free admission and always involve the viewers who are invited to participate in a final debate (following every performance) to express their doubts‚ judgements and opinions...

The main objectives of the project are twofold: on one hand‚ that of helping the circuiting of our choreographers by creating opportunities for them to meet new organizers‚ new countries and new colleagues‚ and on the other hand‚ to help them economically so that these opportunities can be achieved. Italian groups have always been little known outside of Italy‚ so we strongly believe that an economic help to pay for travel and lodging expenses and the possibility of meeting the Choreographic Centers willing to host them can truly contribute a lot toward our choreographers becoming known abroad.
Another aim is that of helping with a co−production of young choreographers selected by the Headquarters Hospitality sector‚ so that after the presentation of their “study𔃉‚ they may continue to work on their project.

Headquarters Hospitality

Headquarters Hospitality has planned a calendar of shows where each evening a local dancer and a dancer from outside the region or from another European country present the “study” they’re working on to an audience. This project provides the opportunity of entering into contact with choreographers from other regions of Italy or other European countries‚ allowing for creative sharing and constructive comparison regarding both the poetics and training. The young choreographers are invited to present their new creations in the form of a study‚ a sort of step on their creative path‚ giving them the opportunity at the end of the performance to discuss it with the audience‚ fellow dancers and the hosting organizers.

The Choreographic Residency is based on an international model

Young choreographers are offered the possibility of working on the study of a new creation at our performance space with a continuity of time for several days free of charge. At the end of the residency‚ there will be a presentation in the evening open to the general public and friends‚ but in a protected situation where everyone is aware that the work has just been begun. The news this year is the newborn collaboration with the Centre de Création Chorégraphique Luxembourgeois TROIS C−L in Luxembourg and with Zodiak Center for new dance in Helsinki‚ Finland.
We will host a choreographer proposed by them for several days and their structure will allow one of our choreographers to have a residency at their space in 2010/11. This is a vital project for entering into contact with new dancers and new experts‚ opening up possibilities for future perspectives.

Shared Choregraphic Residency

A new opportunity has opened up within the choreographic residencies for a pilot project that has been practically non-existent in Italy until now; shared choreographic residency. The project has been conceived and implemented in collaboration with other national and international choreographic centers in order to give choreographers from Piedmont the opportunity to work in creative harmony with choreographers residing in other countries or regions at their choreographic centers for a set period of time...
This is what happens with the Correios Em Movimento Festival‚ which took place for two weeks in August 2011 in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil‚ hosting some Italian choreographers we sponsor‚ many of whom are from Turin ( Aldo Torta‚ Stefano Botti‚ Ambra Senatore‚ Daniele Ninarello...). It also happens with the choreographic center Trois-C in Luxembourg‚ with the choreographic center Tanztendenz in Munich‚ Germany‚ with the Dance House Est in Great Britain‚ with MAINS D’OEUVRES – the center for artistic creation and dissemination of emerging artists in Paris‚ and with eUROPA tEATRI of Parma in collaboration with the Cantieri Association of Ravenna and the festival Danza Urbana in Bologna‚ Italy.


Inside/Off foresees a support to the production of a new creation for one or two choreographers of our Region.

Piedmont Choreographer’s on tour

Thanks to the networks that have been activated in recent years‚ and particularly that of the French festival LES REPERAGES in Lille of the Lille Dance CDC of Roubaix (19 organizational partners from 16 different countries‚ of which we are the only representatives from Italy) and the national festival with the 21 partners of the ANTICORPI XL network (14 regions)‚ we have been able count on shared planning so that economic aid can be offered to help the circuiting of our young choreographers.
