Biennale Danza 2020
Two weeks of performances featuring 19 choreographers
From October 13th to 25th, Venice will be the setting for the 14th International Festival of Contemporary Dance, AnD NoW, directed by Marie Chouinard.
Two weeks of performances with 19 choreographers who have authored 23 pieces (7 world and 5 Italian premieres), as well as encounters and films that will unfurl through the spaces of the Arsenale.
Following in the wake of past editions, the guest choreographers, show dance to be a boundless territory, one of the most dynamic in the art world and most open to hybridization, dance that finds place in theatres, galleries, museums and even trade fairs.
This was the perspective that guided our choice of recipients for the 2020 Lions for Dance: the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement to the Spanish-Swiss choreographer La Ribot and the Silver Lion to choreographer Claudia Castellucci .
The protagonists of this year’s edition are: the Catalan Maria Campos and the Lebanese Guy Nader, Noè Soulier, the Belgian Lisbeth Gruwez, the Basque Jone San Martín, Claudia Catarzi, Matteo Carvone, Silvia Gribaudi, Chiara Bersani, Marco D’Agostin, Sofia Nappi e Adriano Bolognino, Olivier Dubois.
Encounters at the Sale d’Armi and conversations following the performances with great artists. Finally, a cycle of screenings of short and feature-length films to be announced, will be shown at the Arsenale to extend the perspective onto the world of dance and beyond dance.
The programme may be subject to variations.
