In its first edition, the festival is born from a partnership between the city of Blois and the internationally acclaimed dance company AZOTH Dance Theatre, which has held many professional choreographic events in the Loir-et-Cher (French Department) since 2014.

We are looking for 7 dance companies to present their work at the festival.

We intend to present 3 different shows.

In this matter, the program of the performances will be different each day and companies will have the opportunity to perform at 2 shows and present (a) piece(s) no longer than 15-20 minutes.

The same piece can be performed twice, or companies can perform 2 different pieces.
