Danse élargie

Dance competition

The competition DANSE ÉLARGIE is open to artists of all nationalities and ages, irrespective of their principal or original artistic discipline (visual arts, theatre, dance, music, architecture, design…).
The competition is open to all forms of dance, in the broadest possible definition of the term. Multidisciplinary projects are both accepted and encouraged.
Projects entered for the competition must feature at least 3 performers onstage, and must not exceed 10 minutes in length.
Projects conceived specifically for the competition are given preference, though this element is not an obligation.

The seventh edition of the competition is organised by the Théâtre de la Ville, on 25 and 26 June 2022. The presentation of the Finalists’ projects will be open to the public, and will take place during the day on Saturday 25 June 2022, at the Théâtre de la Ville-Espace Cardin in Paris. The projects will be shown again in the same theatre on Sunday 26 June 2022. The Jury reserves the right to choose all or part of the projects, and the order in which they will be presented, on the second day.

Results will be announced, at the latest, on Sunday 26 June 2022, at the end of the day, after the Jury’s deliberations. By applying to the competition, each participant commits to being present when the results are announced.

Each Finalist will receive a fixed sum of 2000€ as a contribution towards the costs incurred by their participation in the competition (accommodation, travel, studio rental…). In return, it is requested that the following mention be included on all communication documents (irrespective of their nature and format – paper, multimedia, and/or audio-visual) produced by the Finalists and in reference to the selected project: “With the support of Danse élargie 2022”.

The winners will receive:
FIRST PRIZE: 13 000€
THIRD PRIZE: 5 000 €
