3…2…1…DANCE! choreographic competition

3…2…1…DANCE! choreographic competition

Krakow Choreographic Centre invites you to the 8th edition of 3…2…1… DANCE! choreographic competition which will be held on 24-25th of March 2018 in the Nowa Huta Cultural Centre, Krakow, Poland.

The event 3…2…1… DANCE! is a choreographic competition which has taken place annually since 2011. The competition includes solo works, duos and trios, basing on widely perceived contemporary dance techniques. The main aim of the competition is to confront your own choreographic work with professional jury and the feedback, from both the jury and the audience, which is to educate the latter. 3…2…1…DANCE! is one of the few Polish competitions which is directed to those choreographers who are looking for their own, original manners of expression, regardless of their age and experience.

The form of the competition constitutes its distinctive feature; according to it every juror, without consulting other members of the jury, awards his/her own two prizes for two chosen presentations. The juror has to determine what values of a particular performance influenced his/her decision and list them on the certificate. Additional prizes in the competition are the audience award and the Grand Prix. The Grand Prix will be chosen by the Organizers from among all the winners and will be awarded for the first time during this year’s edition of the competition.
