The Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth, and Rialto Theatre launch a new institution in the field of Contemporary Dance. The 1st Cyprus Choreography Showcase (CCS) is already in its final stage of preparation and it will be presented to professionals from abroad and to the public on March 7 and 8 at the Rialto Theatre.
This new institution is aiming to present selected works that were choreographed and presented in Cyprus within a period of two years. Specifically, CCS aims to provide opportunities to choreographers who create in Cyprus, to present their work to artistic directors and organizers of contemporary dance festivals abroad, who are specifically invited for this purpose.
In that way, the choreographers’ efforts for international promotion are enhanced, by presenting their works abroad. At the same time, the Showcase presents the most significant choreographic proposals of the past two years to the local public.
A Selection Committee was set up to select the performances. After going through the submitted applications and attending the performances, the Committee selected the projects that will participate in the 1st Cyprus Choreography Showcase.
