How did this grant contribute to the realization of your project in regard to artistic exchange, local cultural development and/or the promotion of cultural diversity?

"danceWEB" is a scholarship program for attending ImPulsTanz festival; giving the scholarship holders the access to all of the festival's workshops, projects and performances. Thanks to this grant, I was able to travel and take part in it. In regard to cultural development and promotion of cultural diversity, it was an intense experience which was beneficial and inspiring for my artistic path.

How does exchange, networking and international contacts contribute to the development of your artistic and cultural project?

A great deal of the danceWEB experience was about the people, who were 67 participants of this scholarship program from all around the world. We lived at the same building, shared our ImPulsTanz experience, shared some workshops, shared our visits to the theaters and shared our art work. This atmosphere was inspiring on many levels. It was a body-mind opening and will definitely leave imprints on my artistic path. In addition, the presence of international participants of the danceWEB scholarship, and international trainers/choreographers who held the workshops/performances brought new approaches and visions as well as connection to my network.

Can you elaborate on the learning and knowledge you have gained and shared throughout this experience?

I went through so many physical experience during the technical workshops and classes; I believe I made a huge leap going through those workshops. Moreover, I saw more than 30 dance performance during this month. I had the amazing chance to watch performances that I could not have probably been able to watch except in ImPulsTanz. It was also very interesting and important to realize the curatorial choices of the festival.
