International Competition for Choreographers: Choreography 31, Hanover
The Ballet Society Hannover e.V. has been organising this unique European contest for choreographers for the past 30 years. Over this long period, the event has achieved a prominent position in the national and International dance scene. Testament to the importance of this event in the International dance-scene is not only the renowned jury, but also the fact, that every year approximately 160 choreographers from 45 nations apply.
It is the goal of this International contest to provide a platform for young choreography talents to flourish. There are many dance competitions around, but only very few worldwide platforms, where new choreography talent is given an opportunity, to be noticed. The competition enables young choreographers to present themselves to a renowned expert jury and to experience the advantages of professional stage technology. It also provides them with the opportunity to exchange ideas with colleagues and the audience.
The competition takes place on 17th and 18th June.
What they are looking for
In order to take part in the competition, all participants, choreographers, and dancers have to have completed professional training. Choreographers must not be older than 35 years.
The length of the performance is limited between 5 and 12 minutes. A solo ballet cannot be interpreted by the choreographer him/herself. Subject and music are free of choice. These few stipulations enable the contest to be open to all styles of presentation. Judging concentrates only on the creative use of space and time, the interpretation of an idea, and the way this is adopted by the performers.
