Aerowaves has selected the shows by Collettivo MINE and Philippe Kratz among the best works of 2021

It is with great pride and happiness that we share these wonderful news: Aerowaves, the European dance network which consists of 44 partners from 33 countries, selects the 20 best contemporary dance shows every year out of approximately 600 projects collected through a public call. Among these 20 works there are 2 shows that were presented during the latest edition of the Gender Bender Festival:

Esercizi per un manifesto poetico by Collettivo MINE

Open Drift by Philippe Kratz

Both shows were created thanks to the production support given out by Gender Bender through some national network projects of which we are part.

Esercizi per un manifesto poetico by Collettivo MINE is the winning project of the 2019 DNAppunti coreografici call, which took place online together with the Milan Triennale | Romaeuropa Festival | CSC Contemporary Scene Center of Bassano del Grappa | Arboreto Teatro Dimora di Mondaino.

Open Drift by Philippe Kratz is one of the 5 pieces commissioned by the Swans Never Die project, created with Lavanderia a Vapore – Centro di Residenza per la Danza | Operaestate Festival and the Contemporary Scene Center of Bassano del Grappa | Milan Triennale | Teatro Grande Foundation of Brescia | Bolzano Danza Festival | Mnemedance | University of Turin.


This is a wonderful achievement that we want to celebrate with joy!
