T*Danse is the first international new dance festival of the Aosta Valley, this year in its second edition.
The festival intends to bring to the Aosta Valley a view on the contemporary performing arts scene.
An international programme that focuses on new languages and technologies, with a special attention towards the new generations of artists; T*Danse aims to build a real community of artists and spectators based on the sharing of tools, ideas, world views. The programme will be the last step of a journey that aims at creating a real connection between citizens, artists and the region, intended as a complex system of associations, institutions, schools and people, also including cross-border communities.
The core of the festival will be the concept of technology: technology of the communication, of the stage and of social relationships.
Here we go!
This year we're more excited than ever for our TERRIFIC programme!
This year's edition will be hosted entirely in the Cittadella dei Giovani of Aosta, packed with many national and international artists. Every space of the venue will be buzzing with music, energy, movement and emotion: this is the heritage we want to disseminate every year through art, dance and performance.
Once more, many generous citizens of the Aosta Valley will open their houses to host the artists and support the festival: all the T*Danse artists will sleep easy. The aim of the T*Danse project is the collective sharing of spaces, feelings, thoughts and fun – luckily sometimes also food.
From 11th to 15th October, five dense days of events. Every day the audience can meet the artists in programme, getting to know better the choreographers' and the performers' work by attending the masterclasses given by the same protagonists of this edition.
We will also have the opportunity to focus on specific themes related to the performing arts, technologies and the social and political analysis of the links between art and society, during the conferences. All of these events compose a rich programme, reaching as many people as possible, with the hope to find them, with new eyes, in the theatre, to watch the shows. In this edition too, our programme is characterized by a strong commitment to our audience, with shows and performances crossing genres and themes.
