An utopia? Finding money to define creativity, developing different generation possibilities, while facing new European needs. Seven panellists, moderated by the reporter Dany Mitzman, have been gathered in Bassano del Grappa for the first day of a philosophical analysis which goes throughout the history of dancehouses. A journey from what has inspired the founders – John Ashford (Aerowaves), Bertram Müller (ex-EDN President), Karene Lyngholm (ex-EDN Chair) – to what moves recent directors – Bettina Masuch (tanzhaus nrw Düsseldorf), Kristin de Groot (Dansateliers Rotterdam), Suzy Blok (Dansmakers Amsterdam), Hooman Sharifi (Carte Blanche) – toward a future of new collaboration.
