This Project is initiated by two women choreographers, each working for the development of contemporary dance in their countries. They have identified ten young Moroccans and Algerians they wish to support in their creative process. Dancers will experience an intensive and full training and they will have an opportunity to extend network and visit regional events of importance. Dance will be shared from choreographers to dancers, but also and transmit to youngers amateurs through regular workshops for groups of children and adolescents in partnership with a neighbourhood association in Casablanca and Algiers. The aim is to strengthen the capacities of the young dance scene in South Mediterranean by transmitting the interest to youth and children, and develop a networking the region about dance, but generally art and culture.
This project is led by Espace Darja/Association les rencontres de la danse based in Casablanca, in partnership with Association Jazz Ame/Cie Nacera Belaza, a dance company working between Algeria and France; in cooperation with the Casablanca based Association Initiative Urbaine.
