MoDem PRO – Programme and opportunity


MoDem PRO is an intense programme open to dancers who have technical expertise and to professional dancers wishing to familiarise with and/or contribute to MoDem’s creative style. The dancers will all go through the same selection process to check their suitability for Compagnia Zappalà Danza’s repertoire and language and ability to contribute within its creative framework. Dancers are expected to have a solid classical and contemporary training.

MoDem PRO programme provides a four-months full immersion on the language of Compagnia Zappalà Danza, from September to December, after which, starting in January 2020 and all year long, up to 4 dancers will be selected to form Modem CZD – young compagnia zappalà danza – which will work on new creations with guest choreographers. The selected dancers of MoDem CZD collective will receive a scholarship during the production period.

The MoDem Pro project allow dancers to analyse practises and bodily gestures typical of our language, to gradually work towards it and develop it.

Dancers will also take part in the project SEEDS, giving them space to develop their own creations, devise and perform short choreographies.

Applications are accepted in order of submission and till the end of available positions.

There are three stages for the admission to MoDem PRO:

In the first step, videos and CVs are evaluated.
In the second one, the selected dancers are invited to take part in the audition.
In the third step, applicants that have gone through the second stage are invited to a final selection and free workshop run by Roberto Zappalà himself.
