Project summary

The Frei Art Festival (DE), Festival 10 Sentidos (Valencia/ES), and Dance Festival Malta support the emerging dance duo Beatriz Mira & Tiago Barreiros in their new piece. These talented choreographers are given a residency where they receive guidance from Chantal Kohlmeyer, the programme director of FREI ART FESTIVAL, through a mentoring programme. This includes dramaturgical support, professional feedback, and encouragement to explore their artistic vision. They also have the opportunity to connect with the local dance and cultural scene, share their experiences through master classes, and showcase their work at the partner festivals. This includes the „Tanzplattform in Freiburg“, which will also take place in the premises of the FREI ART FESTIVAL in 2024.
