MAP TO THE STARS is a project co-funded by Creative Europe, a European Union’s programme, that offers the next generations the opportunity to rediscover dance as movement, stimulating creativity in children aged 8-12 years, through digital media for teachers willing to introduce dance and movement into the school curriculum.
The project is an initiative coordinated by the Ballet National de Marseille and involves partners such as Explora, the ICK dance platform of Amsterdam, the Mercat de les Flors theatre of Barcelona, Manuvo Europe SAS, a company that creates, produces and distributes digital contents to cultural institutions, and Austria’s dance company Silk Fluegge, involved as external consultant.
From September, 2018 dance and creativity will enter the schools of the 4 countries involved.
In Italy, MAP TO THE STARS will bring dance and digital workshops to the 4A and 4B classes of the Guido Alessi primary school and the 4A class of the Villaggio Olimpico primary school of the school complex I.C. Via Micheli of Rome. The project will also produce lesson guides for teachers and a final presentation in the 4 cities: Marseilles, Rome, Barcelona and Amsterdam.
Duration of the project: 01/09/2017- 31/07/2019
