Open Call: The School of Narrative Dance

The School of Narrative Dance
by Marinella Senatore

Parade Salzburg
in cooperation with SZENE Salzburg as part of the Sommerszene Festival

We are looking for people who are curious and want to be part of a collective experience: Amateurs and professionals from the fields of music, dance, singing, sports, acrobatics, associations, initiatives, clubs, etc.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate in the School of Narrative Dance!

A city in motion: In the community project The School of Narrative Dance, the highly acclaimed Italian artist Marinella Senatore invites the residents of Salzburg to participate in a city choreography. Senatore is not only interested in initiating social processes, but also in questioning concepts such as the public sphere and social responsibility, finding alternative forms of storytelling, and ultimately generating a collective memory through communal action. The creative potential of all the contributors culminates in its entirety in a vital portrait of Salzburg. The individual ideas will be staged by Senatore in close collaboration with local choreographers in the form of a large parade through the city. The parade will take place on Saturday, June 24, 2023, at 4 p.m. in Salzburg.

Marinella Senatore's parade The School of Narrative Dance will be a series of preparatory workshops starting on 9 June, which are free and open to all. The workshops take place from 9 to 23 June at the Museum der Moderne Salzburg Mönchsberg in the exhibition Marinella Senatore. We Rise by Lifting Others. The School of Narrative Dance will parade through Salzburg's old town on 24 June 2023.
