The delegation, led by La danse sur les routes du Québec, will participate fully in the festival, a platform which presents new creations from the most promising and vibrant emerging choreographers to professionals and local audiences. Once in Dublin, the Québécois will have the opportunity to experience new creations, meet and exchange with professionals from across Europe and deepen their knowledge of Europe’s dance market. This participation represents the first collaboration between Aerowaves and Québec.
Both Aerowaves and the network of Québec Government Offices in Europe are certain that it also represents the first step towards a fruitful and pivotal collaboration in the development of contemporary dance partnerships between Québec and Europe.
This initiative has been made possible through the support of the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, the ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie, the Québec Government Offices in Rome, London and Paris and Aerowaves.
The Québec Government Offices in Europe will be represented at the event by Andrew Bailey, Cultural Attaché responsible for dance at the Québec Government Office in London.
