We are delighted to announce the programme for Spring Forward 2015!
The fifth festival will greet 16 of this year's Aerowaves Twenty artists within a programme of 23 events at the Mercat de les Flors, El Graner and other venues in Barcelona over one intensive weekend, 17-19 April.
More than 100 dance programmers and presenters will be in town over this weekend and we look forward to lots of conversations and exchange of ideas in the welcoming and supportive framework of Spring Forward.
Last year during Spring Forward, we piloted the Springback Academy project. Once again in Barcelona, we will mentor a group of budding dance writers as they respond to and review performances during the Festival.
We are looking for:
- eight young dance writers from anywhere in Europe
- to join us at Spring Forward in Barcelona, 17-19 April
- who would jump at the chance to be mentored by professional dance critics from the UK, Belgium and Spain to write reviews in English
During and after the festival, their reviews will be published as Springback on the Aerowaves website - and shared widely!
Aerowaves will provide mentorship, accommodation and hospitality to selected participants.
