Four days of choreographic performances in the sestieri of San Marco, Dorsoduro and the Arsenal: this is Biennale College Dance 2015.

Next Biennale College Dance 2015 will take place in Venice from June 25th to 28th and his director Virgilio Sieni has revealed the theme of this edition: “Give place to dance as a space for sharing with the public and innovate together the sense of attendance”.

Four long days of choreographic performances are scheduled in San Marco, Dorsoduro and the Arsenal, running from noon till evening. As V. Sieni said “Venice in this sense becomes a metaphor for a world that reflects the property left by the community (streets, canals, buildings, fields, squares, bridges, the lagoon, the body of the city), and invites us to inaugurate a series of exercises for the future based on the dignity of the gesture, the body and the dance understood as research on the human territory and beauty “.

For this edition of Biennale College Dance 2015 Virgilio Sieni has invited 16 choreographers who will lead for 3 weeks some workshops involving professional dancers but sometimes also younger dancers and citizens. The result will be the creation of short choreographic works that will be presented to the public on June the 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th.

The choreographers invited are already well-known or new prominent names of the international scene, as Laurent Chetouane, Xavier Le Roy, Cesc Gelabert, Alessandro Sciarroni, Radhouane El Meddeb, Claudia Castellucci, the historical founder of the Societas Raffaello Sanzio, Emanuel Gat and Sharon Fridman, exponents od the new generation of Israeli dance established in Europe, Olivia Grandville (which recreate a choreography of Boris Charmatz), Marina Giovannini and Michele Di Stefano, who won the Silver Lion prize last year, and obviously Virgilio Sieni. Next to them some younger protagonists: Save Sanchis, co-choreographer of some performances with Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, the Kinetic Collective of Francesca Pennines, Anna Ajmone and the Swiss Yasmine Hugonnet.
