Organisation: Association “Hayyou’Raqs
In 2013, seven professional and amateur dancers decided to create the association Hayyou’Raqs, dedicated to dance. The association aims at foster exchange between international actors in order to strengthen links between the Tunisian choreography scene and the international sphere and for mutual enrichment. “Hayyou’Raqs” means « Salute dance », « Dance I salive » and « the city of dance ».
The association’s objective is to contribute to the development of training dedicated to Tunisian dancers. It offers training sessions, workshops and other activities related to the culture of choreography, gathering dancers, choreographers, researchers…
The association has just concluded the project “Tawassel: raising awareness about training and the practice of dance ». This 15-month prject (20 week) has allowed a large number of dancers to practice with international guest artists and instructors.
Through this experience, the association has developed its own identity and the project is very well recognized in the dance scene in Tunisia. We would like to build on this experience and develop an even more targeted proposition by strengthening the pedagogical component and creating links with dance networks abroad.
They are looking for partners from the filed of performing arts.
