Spark is a project that in many ways is a continuation of the EU project Moving Beyond Inclusion that Spinn and Producentbyrån were part of between 2016 to 2018.
Spark brings together BewegGrund – Switzerland (Project Managers), Oriente Occidente Dance Festival – Italy, Danskompaniet Spinn / Producentbyrån – Sweden, CODA Oslo International Dance Festival – Norway, Candoco Dance Company – Great Britain, Dance group Magie – Croatia and tanzfähig – Germany. The project is about strengthening already existing networks, share knowledge about specific working methods and choreographic approaches in inclusive dance, create a better mobility for the dancers from each respective organizations and their networks and create touring possibilities for works by inclusive dance companies.
During the project, the three festivals BewegGrund – Das Festival, Oriente Occidente Dance Festival and CODA Oslo International Dance Festival will each invite disabled performing artists to take part of the festivals. We will also present artistic labs. The first lab is focusing on dramaturgy and takes place in Rovereto, Italy in September 2019. The second lab takes place in Region Västra Götaland during Autumn 2020.
