International Contemporary Dance Campus

The UNI-TANZ project was born in 2013 from the collaboration between the Koreoproject Company based in Lecce and the Folkwang Universitet der Kunste of Essen, a historic German university, forge of some of the most famous artists of the contemporary scene, including Pina Bausch, for many years the school’s artistic director.
The artistic-pedagogical philosophy of the campus aligns with the Folkwang and Bausch foundations of student training: “We do not train dancers, but people who dance”; it aims not only at enhancing the technique of the selected students, but at the development of individual personalities, thus managing to forge aware artists and creators of their own art, able to reconcile tradition and innovation.

The 2021 campus will take place from 30 August to 4 September in a manner yet to be defined, based on the national and regional legislation linked to the pandemic curve and the data collected relating to the covid19 emergency. Based on these data, the campus will be able to take place in person, online or mixed.

The guest artists of the 2021 edition of the campus program represent and involve four of the most prestigious European universities and dance companies, with which Koreoproject collaborates on artistic and educational projects. This year, the program once again aims at internationalization and comparison between European university dance institutes:

Director of the Superior Conservatory of Dança in Madrid and dancer of the Nacho Duato Company

Director of the National School of Dance in Athens and dancer of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch

Lecturer at the Folkwang Universitet der Kunste in Essen and Artistic Director of the Folkwang Tanz Studio Company

Lecturer at the National Academy of Dance in Rome and Artistic Director of Koreoproject

The study days will consist of lessons in Contemporary Dance Technique and contemporary repertoire and choreographic research laboratories.
Lessons will be held at the Liceo coreutico Ciardo Pellegrino in Lecce.
On 3 September a flash mob will be organized with the Campus participants who will perform in the famous Nelken Line by Pina Bausch curated by Daphnis Kokkinos in the historic center of Lecce.
The Campus will end on September 4th with a performance entitled UNI-TANZ DANCE EVENING-GUESTS which will take place in one of the open spaces in the city of Lecce; the students of the campus will take part in the live show, with the return of the choreographic works developed during the campus, masters and guest artists with performance contributions.
