Starting at 6 pm CET (Bruxelles time), six events entirely dedicated to dance are going to be broadcasted on the official website every day.
Screendance performances and talks will animate a unique online program created and produced by the six European partners involved in the project Clash! When Classic and Contemporary Dance Collide and New Forms Emerge – promoted by Balletto di Roma (Italy) and co-funded by Creative Europe Program of the European Union.
The Festival will present a shared calendar of events to show the results of practical investigations led during the European exchange by the project-partners from 2018.

Coordinated by Sapienza University of Rome (Italy), every day of CLASH! International Festival is curated by each partner-dance company ‒ Balletto di Roma (Italy), 420PEOPLE (Czech Republic), Companhia de Dança de Almada (Portugal), Derida Dance Center / Art Link Foundation (Bulgaria), Polski Teatr Tanca/ Polish Dance Theater (Poland) – and focus on a particular issue explored along the initiative. Topics such as Audience Development, Dancer’s Training, Cultural Diplomacy in the Dance Field, and Choreographic-Making Processes are going to be displayed during the event programmed to allow the users to interact in creative dialogues with choreographers, dance pedagogues, and keynote speakers. Each day of the festival will end with a screendance performance created for the occasion by each partner.
