Nuova Officina Della Danza is thrilled to announce NUOVA X:  a novel program directed by choreographer  Tom Weinberger, in collaboration with NOD.

 

Nuova X is an educational creative program designed to function on high intensity. Three months, five days a week, four hours per day. The program offers theopportunity for a pre – selected group of dancers to embark on two in-depth creations with two different choreographers. Each creation period stretches overfive weeks, inviting a meeting point to cultivate creative stamina, a flexible mind, and the necessary tools to become a more skillful collaborator inside a creative context.

 

The program’s emphasis is on giving ample time for a meaningful process, providing the opportunity to dive into and learn from the choreographers’ methodologies and creative practices.

 

Our goal is to cultivate an environment for a mindful educational journey, creatingroom to raise questions and space to challenge our physical and performative skills, while encouraging vulnerability and growth.

 

At the end of each trimester a studio showing will be held, giving the participants a platform to share the works in progress with the community.

 

In order to apply please send your CV together with two separate links - one showcasing yourself in an improvisation session ( 1 minute - 1 take ) and one where you execute a set piece of choreography ( max 2 minutes ). Only Vimeo or YouTube links to
