29 Abr Dance Day 29 April 2015
The official message for
29 April 2015
A century ago famous Russian ballet organizer Sergei Diaghilev revolutionized by inviting the Most Talented painters and musicians of His Time to Contribute to His performances. I have the impression That present day choreographers neglect the other arts, do not feel the need to present Their creations alongside Their equals in other fields.
I am sure would appreciate more arts audiences included in dance performances, starting with the classical arts: painting, sculpture, theater, music, poetry, architecture, as well as more modern forms like photography, cinema, multimedia, lighting design, sound design. Let me Go further in proposing to enrich choreography With The humanities (history, literature, philosophy and linguistics). Particularly Personally I would enjoy storytelling, martial arts, and – I mean it very seriously – culinary arts.
There is nothing new to it, ancient Greeks in Their symposia combined all the above. After 25 centuries Could we return to the notion That performance combine to complete as many arts as possible.
This year the International Dance Council CID joins forces with a sister organization to celebrate Dance Day. The International Association of Art IAA / AIAP is a non-governmental organization Whose offices are next to ours at UNESCO. Our common proposal is to combine dance with painting, drawing, sculpture or other forms of creative work in the visual arts.
Many thanks to Ms. Rosa-Maria Burillo from Mexico, World President of IAA / AIAP, WHO Mobilized artists from dozens of countries suggesting They Cooperate With choreographers, dancers and dance teachers in common events: performances, exhibitions, happenings, flash mobs, worship meetings , therapeutic sessions and (why not?) banquets!
