A €68,000 cash injection has been given to a dance agency to help them collaborate with promoters in Bulgaria, Croatia and Greece.
The money to Greenwich Dance in The Borough Hall, Royal Hill, Greenwich, has been given by the European Union’s Executive Agency Education Audiovisual and Culture department.
The first collaboration will be a Cabaret taking in Athens on October 7 and 8, which will showcase performers from all four partner countries.
The collaboration between Greenwich Dance and the three Eastern European countries began 18 months ago as a result of seed money from the British Council’s Creative Collaborations fund.
So far this has resulted in six international visits and three cabaret evenings in Sofia, London and Zagreb involving over 35 artists. Performers from all the three partner countries took part in The Big Cabaret in Greenwich on May 21 to mark the launch of The Big Dance event.
CitytoCity Cabaret will travel to Zagreb in November 2010, London in January 2011 and then to Sofia in March.
