Nederlandse Dansdagen 2014

Cecilia Moisio 
Friday evening, 3rd of October, The Dutch Dance Festival opened its 17th edition and after so many years the festival is still growing. By means of side projects like Act Your Age, Peforming Gender, collaboration with FASHIONCLASH and investment in new generation of dance makers, the festival remains relevant.
The festival kicked off with Dutch Dance Dialogues. I was invited to take seat in the panel of the first part 'dance and fashion' moderated by Aynouk Tan. The second topic was 'dance and gender'.
Next on my programme where "Performing Gender' performances at Bonnefanten Museum, followed by the grande opening evening with performances Smell of Bliss by LeineRoebana, 'Shirokuro'  by Tomoko Mukaiyama Foundation and 'Roses' by De Dansers.
For Cecilia Moisio the evening will be memorable for sure as she was awarded with 'Nederlandse Dansdagen Maastricht Prijs 2014'.Friday evening continued with a late night spectacular multidisciplinary performance 'Naked Lunch' by Club Guy & Roni.

At day two I dived further into the Dutch dance roller coaster starting with (OLD)Fashion(ed) performances by Dario Tortorelli and Dunja Jocic. After the coffee break I made a stop at Mosae Forum pop-up store where Distinguished Dreams project took stage and where fashion and dance clashed. Looking back to many years I attended Dutch Dance Festival I was so proud that FASHIONCLASH and Dutch Dance Festival cooperation resulted in this two special projects, (OLD)Fashion(ed) and Distinguished Dreams.
The festival puts new generation choreographers on stage and from the noon on I watched the intense The Dog Days Are Over by emerging star Jan Martens, followed by Mor Shani's intense 'Love-ism'.
Winner of 'Nederlandse Dansdagen Maastricht Prijs 2013', Giulio D'Anna presented a premiere of his new piece R-ESISTERE.
After a quick diner break and outfit change I found my self again at the 'Gala of the Dutch Dance Festival' and the after party. Highlight of the evening was the performance 'Wolf' by Scapino Ballet.

This year I had to skip the Sunday programme due to my trip to Slovenia, having said that I look forward to 2015.
