"danceWEB made me realize how lucky I am to be a stranger in this world. I hope I will always be a stranger full of questions and a few interesting answers. I can say now I am at a starting point of an exciting life full of questions. And out there there’s a world full of answers and, what’s more tempting, full of new questions. "

danceWEB 2005 - General Information
July 14 - August 18 • Vienna
European Scholarship Programme for Contemporary Dance

danceWEB is a project which in the area of dance represents an unprecedented example in Europe, bringing together quite a manifold mixture of creative energy and providing artists with the opportunity for constructive and imaginative dialogue with each other. The aim of this project is to present participants with the great diversity of developments and traditions in Contemporary dance as a unified source for enrichment; to teach students in such a way as to give rise to auto-didactic learning based on this diversity.

The time spent working and learning together in Vienna is intended to fuel future creative processes and international joint productions. Furthermore, danceWEB as a platform for communication shall continue to transcend national borders in order to promote co-operation between young artists.

ImPulsTanz - Vienna International Dance Festival and its manifold teaching programme with the most diverse dance techniques as well as the contemporary dance presentation offer the danceWEB scholarship holders ideal possibilities for an artistic exchange, for reflection and dialogue and advanced education in dance.
In view of this multitude of opportunities the student can find his/her own artistic position. Meeting dancers, choreographers, teachers and students from other traditions sharpens the respect for foreign cultures and provides new creative impulses for the scholarship holders‘ own artistic work.

The participants will be accompanied by the danceWEB coach (David Zambrano) who will help and assist the individual student during the scholarship programme.

"What I learned as a lesson from being a danceWEBber is: to always do, what nature gave me to work on; to dance with my full imagination and power and to create my very personal and strong atmosphere; to believe in the body and it’s physical limits; to go further along my way as a creator and dancer and keep the trust in myself. "
Marta Ladjanszki, Hungary
