RIDCC is very excited to present this vibrant and unique event, where sixteen chosen ones – from more than 300 contestants – will compete for outstanding awards. During the preliminaries on June 23rd and 24th you will witness the sixteen, multi-styled duets. On Saturday June 25th we conclude the festival with a grand finale, showing the duets selected by a renowned jury. From these selected duets, the jury will determine the winner of the XL Production Award, while RIDCC’s partners choose the winners of the Partner Awards from all sixteen participants. Finally, while enjoying drinks and a bite to eat, you will decide which talented choreographer gets granted the Audience Award. Former dancer and Dutch actor Jan Kooijman will keep the audience in suspense, announcing the festival’s winners during a festive award ceremony. An extra feature of this upcoming edition will be the performance of 2018 RIDCC participant Fabio Liberti. Remarkably, Fabio has developed into one of the most eye-catching and successful young choreographers of our time and, specifically for RIDCC 2022, Fabio will present his beautiful work LEAD ME as well as his award-winning dance film DON’T KISS .mov.
