Moving Futures is an initiative of five (talent)developers in contemporary dance – Dansmakers Amsterdam, Dansateliers Rotterdam, DansBrabant Tilburg, Random Collision Groningen and Generale Oost Arnhem. By creating a nationally widespread network and by joining forces with local theatres and partners, the dance houses try to create more exposure possibilities for the work of emerging choreographers on a national scale.
Moving Futures, the network, reflects a shared vision in how to design talent development of emerging dance artists in contemporary dance. It facilitates a critical dialogue, which sharpens working methods, individual identities, ways of thinking and operating. The Moving Futures festival offers, besides the works of the choreographers, a rich and contextualizing programme for the audience to meet the artists in various ways. Both network and festival facilitate encounters between makers, audience, programmers and producers. Through strong collaboration amongst the partners and with local theatre venues and partners, the dance houses strive towards visibility and exposure for a new generation of choreographers in the field of contemporary dance.
