Anghiari Dance Hub was founded in January 2015 by the will and determination of some dance and theatre managers with the aim of providing young choreographers with tools to enhance and deepen their creative paths. For three consecutive months, the choreographers work with their interpreters on their first drafts of an original choreographic work. All along they are accompanied by tutors on dance dramaturgy, music-dance relationship, choreographic composition and light design as well as on the organization and promotion of their works. At the end of the training, the choreographic drafts are presented to the audience at the Theatre of Anghiari and to a small group of operators, professionals, critics, searchers and choreographers who will dialogue with the authors to share stimuli and perspectives. Choreographers and performers work in two rehearsal spaces and each receives a grant and accommodation. Anghiari Dance Hub is supported by the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and by the Tuscany Region, and participates in projects aimed at internationalization programs.
