Summer 2014

This year, Lab celebrates its 5th edition!

5th International Kinitiras Choreography Lab

Kinitiras Choreography Lab, creating a multicultural environment, is an important innovation within the dance sector in Greece and internationally.

The Lab encourages artists to keep up with the three characteristics of creative production: ideas, practice and analysis, which are interdependent in artistic experimentation. The central aim of the Lab is to establish a community of artists that will continue the dialogue beyond the timescales of the Lab with a view to roll out the impact of the Lab on another level.

This year as part of our fifth year celebration and in collaboration with the Dance area at DEREE we are also expanding the Professional Choreographic Development project for artists who have completed the lab. For 2014-2015, there will be a competitive call for residencies for research and development support throughout the year. The selected artists for the residencies will be supported not only through the provision of rehearsal space and production support as part of the School of Fine & Performing Arts Festival in the spring but will also will receive a stipend ranging between 500-1000 Euros to develop their new work depending on the proposal. Priority will be given to NEW participants to this year Lab although applications from past labbers will continue to be considered.

But remember, this unique opportunity is only available for artists who celebrate with us our 5th anniversary and complete the 2014 summer lab.
