DNAppunti coreografici 2022: the 4 finalist projects

After a selection among more than 60 applications, we are pleased to announce the 4 finalist projects of the DNAppunti coreografici 2022 call:



IRENE by Alessandro Marzotto

CONTRE-POIDS by Massimo Monticelli



These 4 choreography ideas will be presented in Rome on October 30, 2022 at the Pelanda Mattatoio Cultural Centre, as part of the Romaeuropa Festival.


Among these 4 works, the jury of DNAppunti Coreografici will select the winning project of the 2022 edition, which will obtain support for its creation through a research program that offers different kinds of supporting initiatives in 2023: creative residencies (37 days of attendance), economic resources (total economic contribution of about 18,500.00 euros) and visibility (5 encore performances of the project as part of our partners’ programming).


We would like to thank all those who sent their applications for the 2022 edition of DNAppunti choreografici and  also tell the artists that we’ll be waiting for you for the 2023 edition!


See you next time on October 30 in Rome for the presentation of live works, we will be waiting for you!


DNAppunti coreografici is a project that aims at supporting young choreographers under the age of 35. It consists of different research and development stages (putting ideas together, analyzing the research that has been done, offering creative residencies, and contribution to production). The project was born from a collaboration throughout Italy between the National Center for Dance Production Virgilio Sieni, the Operaestate Festival/CSC Contemporary Scene Center of Bassano del Grappa, L’arboreto – Teatro Dimora | La Corte Ospitale ::: Emilia Romagna Residency Center, the Romaeuropa Foundation, the Gender Bender Festival of Bologna, and Triennale Milano Teatro.
