Distinguished Dreams


Distinguished Dreams

Dance meets Fashion in a special collaboration of FASHIONCLASH & Dutch Dance Festival (Nederlandse Dansdagen)

In this project between FASHIONCLASH & Dutch Dance Festival ten successful young choreographers and designers will create new work in pairs. Each group will develop a mini performance based on a mutual fascination and concept. De choreographies will be performed by dancers from dance schools in Venlo and Maastricht.

The created works differ in terms of length and shape from the traditional format in which they are considered to be presented which literally opens up new opportunities for the creators. Dance and fashion communicate directly, beyond reason. Our bodies, and the way we literally hide and reveal us, is central. What happens when top talents from the Fashion and Dance world meet in a clash?
