Competition: 3…2…1… DANCE! choreographic competition (Kraków, Poland)


Krakow Choreographic Centre is announcing the 7th edition of 3…2…1… DANCE! choreographic competition to be held on 4-5th of March 2017 in the Nowa Huta Cultural Centre, Krakow, Poland.

The event 3…2…1… DANCE! is a choreographic competition which has taken place annually since 2011. The competition includes solo works, duos and trios, based on broadly defined contemporary dance techniques. The basic aim of the competition is to confront your own choreographic work with aprofessional jury and the feedback from both the jury and the audience. The form of the competition constitutes its distinctive feature: every juror, without consulting other members of the jury, awards his/her own two prizes for two chosen presentations. The juror has to determine what values of a particular performance influenced his/her decision and list them on the certificate. 3…2…1…DANCE! is one of the few Polish competitions which targets those choreographers who are looking for their own, original manners of expression, regardless of their age and experience.
