This year the 17th International Architecture Exhibition will intersect with the 15th International Festival of Contemporary Dance from 23 July to 1 August, hosting at the Arsenale, in the section of the Exhibition titled Among Diverse Beings, the installations and dancers-choreographers of the Biennale College.
Under the mentorship of the Artistic Director of Artistic Director Wayne McGregor, they will create short choreographic fragments, “snapshots” or “sketches” inspired by the signs, materials and themes of the Architecture Exhibition.
Artistic Director of Biennale Danza
Everything that can be done with dance and through dance today. In his first year as the director of the 15th International Festival of Contemporary Dance (23 July > 1 August), Wayne McGregor illuminates the complexity, the breadth, the “transformability” of a discipline that thrives on renewal and which, in its dialogue with the most cutting-edge thinking, advances the development of contemporary art.
Seven steps/ acts
The map of the Biennale Danza 2021 is divided into seven steps/acts: the live performances with choreographers and companies from around the world, the multilingual installations, the new energy of the Biennale College, the rich production of films about and featuring dance, the collaborations among the disciplines within La Biennale itself, the conversations with the artists and the commissions for new dance. 10 days of events with over 100 artists, all Italian premieres, two World premieres and three European premieres.
We wish to thank the Ministry for Culture for its significant contribution and the Regione del Veneto for the support it has granted to the programmes of the Dance Department of La Biennale di Venezia.
Collaboration and Main Sponsor
This year marks the beginning of a new collaboration with Bottega Veneta – a company with an innovative artisanal identity rooted in Italian culture but with a global outlook – that under the creative direction of Daniel Lee will offer its support for the next two years as the Main Sponsor of the activities of Biennale Danza and Biennale College Danza.
