The D&D Award 2021 “Special project” went to MicroDanze.

The motivations read:

The FND/Aterballetto’s MicroDances project has travelled through Europe, changing along the way. After its premiere in Athens, among the bas-reliefs of the Parthenon (a joint venture with the Greek National Opera), and the presentation within the contemporary art exhibition Orizzonti del Corpo in Reggio Emilia, it landed in Brussels for the season at Les Halles de Schaerbeek. It is poised to continue its journey in 2022, moving through public art and urban landscapes. Conceived by FND artistic director Gigi Cristoforetti and co-produced with the Fondazione Palazzo Magnani in Reggio Emilia, MicroDances involved twelve choreographers in creating brief performances for small spaces; this was a way of responding intelligently to the limitations posed by the pandemic. Here, dance is made to dialogue with others and with itself, defying genre categorisations; it interacts with both the creative inventiveness of visual artists, and cinematic VR technologies, to present innovative formats and ways of watching.

The JURY of the D&D AWARD is composed of Maria Luisa Buzzi (President), Elisabetta Ceron, Giuseppe Distefano, Francesca Pedroni, Silvia Poletti, Sergio Trombetta and Carmelo A.. Zapparrata.
