“PALCO APERTO” OPEN CALL.
December 3rd, 2012 and April 29th, 2013
From this year PimOff want to import a practice well known abroad and, in our opinion, very useful for choreographers: the Open Stage.
Open Stage offers choreographers the opportunity to show an excerpt of their work, or study for a work in progress, for professionals and non-an opportunity to have a confrontation with the public and to test their work and / or to be known.
Participation is open to all choreographers or “danz’autori” professionals or semi-professionals in the Lombardy region. We would like Open Stage to be devoid of selection, since this is a project under development, but we reserve the possibility of deciding how to manage the course of work organization should there be too many requests.
At the end of each evening will be chosen a choreographer invited to take advantage of an artist residency in 9 days at the theater PimOff.
