- Dance Gate Lefkosia Cyprus - MODUL DANCE - EU



Modul-dance is a multi-annual cooperation project funded by the European Commission through the Culture Programme. Supported by the European Dance house Network modul-dance is a collaboration between 22 European dance houses and media institutions from 15 countries; more than any previous EU-sponsored cultural project.

Modul-dance focuses on the development of independent professional dance artists by taking account of the unique resources and facilities that each project partner offers; their particular economic and cultural contexts and, how these can best be used and strengthened, at local level and across Europe.

In this context, the aim of modul-dance is to create the optimum production conditions for artists, dancers and choreographers throughout Europe in order to facilitate their mobility and promote the dissemination of their work.

The project is organised as a modular system system to facilitate the creative working process of each artist. Every participating artist has the possibility of going through 4 module phases, i.e. research, residency, production and presentation of the works. A pre-modular programme, carte blanche is offered to promising young artists to complete a short residency at one project partner's dance house. In parallel to this modular process additional artistic programmes are being organised, such as conferences, artists' think tanks, film screenings, roadshow activities and festivals.

We envisage that at least 40 choreographers will be supported by the project, approximately 500 artists participating in international exchange and presentation will be involved, and at least 400 presentations of their works will be shown throughout Europe.

The total project cost is 4.345.000 Euro (with 50% funding from EU). Modul-dance runs from June 2010 to December 2014.
