WOMAN MADE 637x232

WOMAN MADE is a project of valorization, diffusion and implementation of international female choreographic production.

Starting from Italy, the driving force behind the project, the creative work radiates in the direction of other 7 countries with a view to sharing intentions and achieving common goals such as: the positioning of women in apical and powerful roles in working contexts (the dance sector, our field of action, is in this case emblem and symbol of a struggle for the emancipation of women in the world of work); the overcoming of the sterile social antagonism between men and women; the overcoming of mental barriers, traditions and customs that still today do not allow women to determine their own destiny in the working field free from preconceptions and prejudices.

Through this network of women-choreographers, we intend to make the production of artistic content of great depth and value shine, with a strong visual and emotional impact, the result of creators from 8 different origins. This is a transversal collaboration whose beating heart is in the right to be recognized as professionals, choreographers and creatives, in the same way as their male colleagues.

The network brings together the collaboration between several Italian artistic institutions, having as its leader the cultural association ArtGarage - Centro Coreografico e delle Arti Performative Contemporanee, under the artistic direction of Emma Cianchi, which is joined by the cultural association Dance Gallery/Residenza HOME (Perugia), directed by Valentina Romito; the production company Associazione Adarte (Siena), directed by Francesca Lettieri and Paola Vezzosi; the production company Associazione Culturale Borderline (Salerno), directed by Claudio Malangone; and the company Associazione Campania Danza (Salerno), directed by Antonella Iannone.

The project thus starts from the Italian region of Campania, important in the area of Contemporary Dance thanks to the NID Platform project that is being developed there.

Internationally, the WOMAN MADE project is developed with other partners from several countries:

United States of America: American Dance Abroad
Greece: Milos International Dance & Theatre Center
Israel: Machol Shalem
Mexico: Conjunto Santander de Arte Escenica
Portugal: Companhia de Dança de Almada
Tunisia: Hayyou'Raqs
Vietnam: Arabesque Dance Company

WOMAN MADE won the Boarding Pass Plus '21/'22 from the Italian Ministry of Culture, to give voice to women choreographers, directors and curators in artistic creation and programming, converging the female perspective on Contemporary Dance.
