Conny Janssen Danst
The winner will receive the opportunity to present their duet, shown in the competition, with dancers of Conny Janssen Danst during a short national tour of DANSLOKAAL, a talent development production by Conny Janssen Danst.

Conny Janssen: “It is always difficult for young choreographers to come into contact with companies, theaters, programmers and the public. Finding a stage to present your own work in a professional manner is a complex process. As the artistic director of Conny Janssen Danst, the RIDCC offers me an opportunity to meet new talent and then to collaborate with a choreographer whose work fascinates me. Presenting your own work during the RIDCC is not the end station. It is the start of various collaborations with the professional field. And therefore, the RIDCC can give an important boost to the development of young choreographers.

Artistic director and choreographer Conny Janssen has founded Conny Janssen Danst in 1992. Conny Janssen Danst is one of the leading modern dance companies in the Netherlands. The work of Conny Janssen is widely known for the strong physical and theatrical power of the dancers and the surprising diversity of her performances, in which high-quality dance is always central.

And a unique opportunity for Codarts dancers to work on new repertoire with new talented choreographers.

Samuel Wuersten, Codarts Rotterdam and Holland Dance Festival, The Hague (also RIDCC jury member): “RIDCC is a wonderful addition to the dance and cultural landscape of Rotterdam. This international gathering of talented choreographers is a great opportunity to get in touch with a wide range of interesting new creators.

It’s taking place in Rotterdam, allows all participating dance organizations to come together and exchange on the various works. It is interesting to see how choices are being made, each organization choosing a different work/choreographer to be selected. It reflects our ability to see quality in a variety of works.
