During the Dutch Dance Festival Digital, from 1 to 8 October, the festival facilitates online meetings between international programmers and Dutch dance companies, makers and choreographers. This introduces international programmers to the broad spectrum of Dutch dance. In collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts, these virtual encounters are made possible through a specially designed, digital workplace. This digital workplace will be opened for the first time this year, but will continue to be a qualitative and sustainable addition to opening up Dutch dance to the international dance field in the coming years.
This digital edition of Moving Meetings has three spearheads:
Via the specially designed online platform, the international programmer gets access to Dutch dance, an overview where he / she can discover more and is surprised by unknown and exclusive offerings. In this way, the Nederlandse Dansdagen and Dutch Performing Arts facilitate a landing spot for the dance field where companies and makers can present themselves to the international programming world in a professional, clear and user-friendly framework.
In addition to an introduction to dance in the Netherlands, an in-depth program will also take place during the Dutch Dance Days Digital Festival. The successful elements from 2019: pecha kucha and short creative presentations will be repeated in an adapted digital format in 2020. There are regular plenary meetings and we facilitate ways to plan one-on-one follow-up meetings.
Advising and Guiding
Dutch dance artists and companies who want to present themselves online, on the platform, receive advice and guidance in this. Special components are being developed for this in collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts.
