ACI DANZA 360º
Dance International Choreographic Action
Project attached to 360GRAdOS Contemporary Dance with choreographers of contemporary dance It is born with the intention of implementing an artistic cultural exchange through choreographic processes of new or reassembling pieces of creators at international level. Thus, emphasizing the international artistic opening and visualizing as objective the projection of different styles and visions within the contemporary dance, in addition to generating a direct link between different artists.
ACI Danza promotes contemporary dance and gives value to the work of renowned choreographers with a long history and important contributions within the national and international dance culture.
For us as a company, there is a direct growth in nourishing creative processes with different choreographers, leading our body to feel and experience different qualities of movement, also to give members and other invited dancers an enriching experience for their professional career.
The project creates the direct connection between artists to create a more extensive link, which is carried out through a creative residency process that coordinates directly with the guest choreographer and their availability. In this short space of residence is realized an unpublished choreography of its creation that later it becomes part of the repertoire of the company 360GRADOS that will move like the other works of the repertoire but within the project ACI Dance 360º. At the end of the residence process a sample of the choreographic work is presented.
