Diana Vishneva's Context festival

Moscow
Saint Petersburg

October / December 2019

Context. Diana Vishneva 2019 program and Open Call for 2020 announced

The festival 2019 will focus on going beyond the boundaries of the familiar language, genre, space, and age. This will be reflected, first of all, in the international program, which consists of two performances — the Grand Finale by the Hofesh Shechter company (London) and Equal Elevations by the Spanish company La Veronal.

In addition to the Young Choreographers Competition, Context. Diana Vishneva announces an open call for Context. Diana Vishneva 2020. The main aim of this initiative is to establish a dialogue between representatives of different cultures, styles, and ages. Dancers, choreographers, companies from any country, working in different techniques may apply.

Applications will be accepted until December 31, 2019. The selected work will be presented as part of the festival special program in 2020.
