Dancers from Paraná and surrounding areas look forward to attending the event that gives visibility to new talents, national and international opportunities and gives dance students the chance to be recognized on the most emblematic stage of Parana with the full house: Guairão. This is Mostra Paranaense de Dança. Festival organized by ABABTG - Association of Ballet Dancers and Supporters of Guaíra Theater - which in its last edition brought together about 15,000 people (including audiences, dancers, registered artists and students of workshops), with the participation of 83 groups from more than 50 cities. This Thursday, the tenth edition of the event begins to Curitiba’s selective and invites groups, companies, schools and dance students to live strong emotions.
Having the opportunity to perform on the stage of Guairão has already been a unique experience for several groups and dancers that are selected for the final of the Mostra, but the event goes beyond. Participants have found possibilities for technical and artistic improvement and opportunities in professional companies thanks to the visibility that the Festival grants. Last year, dancer Daniel Perin from Francisco Beltrão, who participated in several editions of the event, was invited to join the Ulm Theater - a German contemporary dance company - through a public audition, when the director of the company was in Brazil for another project of the Association. According to the president of ABABTG, the dancer Simone Bönisch, the 2017 edition promises great surprises. “For this commemorative year, we want to broaden the reach of the Mostra’s actions, which aim not only to improve the artistic work of the participants, but also to stimulate the professionalization of young students.” According to Simone, the purpose of revealing and valuing local talent will intensify: “What happened to Daniel Perin greatly rejoices us, we want other young people to have opportunities like this,” she says.
The applications for Curitiba’s selective are open between April 13th and 19th by the website www.ababtg.org.br/mostra. The participants will be presented to a group of professionals invited by ABABTG at Guairinha between May 4th and 7th. The official opening of the event, on the 3rd, at 8pm, will feature the presentation of internationally awardeddancers at the Internationales Solo-Tanz-Theater Festival Stuttgart, the German contemporary dance festival. All presentations are open to the general public.
Mostra Paranaense de Dança will also have selectives in Ponta Grossa, Francisco Beltrão, Campo Mourão and Arapongas (schedule of inscriptions below) to select choreographies from all Paraná and other states for the grand finale. In the inner cities, the opening of the activities will be with G2 Cia de Dança, with the spectacles La Cena and Blow Elliot Benjamin, both with direction of Cleide Piasecki. Technical and artistic improvement workshops will also be offered in varied modalities, given by qualified professionals.
