Festival de Música y Danza de Granada is one of the most important cultural events in Spain and one of the festivals with an oldest tradition within the Spanish scene. Its origins go back to the symphonic concerts organized in the Alhambra palace back in 1883, although its first official edition was celebrated in 1952. In the present days, the Festival is held under a consortium participated by the Spanish Ministry of Culture, the Regional Government of Andalucia, the City Council office, the Provincial Council Office and the University of Granada.
The project DANSART “Diághilev today: crossing borders through dance, music, visual and performing arts” seeks to celebrate the figure of the Russian director and choreographer Sergei Diaghilev through a contemporary approach to his legacy by bringing together the contemporary arts (paint, music, design, choreography, dance, performing arts, etc.) that will revisit Diaghilev’s ideas through a global production of a contemporary mise-en-scène.
Further that this, the aim of the project relies as well in developing public engagement strategies, by the use of new technologies, data analysis and the creation of tools for the promotion of young entrepreneurs in the arts.
