The nine venues will receive 22 companies from different backgrounds, who will give a total of 46 performances. Dance in Valencia will be represented by five companies, by 10 solos from choreographers, and by the presence of local dancers and choreographers who are now based overseas, such as Clara Barberá from the Rambert Dance Company, Maite Cebrián from the Lyon Opera Ballet, Davis Rodrigo from the company L'Adret and Gustavo Ramírez from Proyecto Titoyaya, among others.
The Choreography Centre has established itself as a centre for spreading and promoting dance from the Region of Valencia both nationally and internationally, and has attracted a loyal following in support of dance.
Also taking place, from 28th April to 2nd May at the Teatro Talía theatre, is the Danseta Valčncia festival, during which schoolchildren and family audiences can enjoy original performance from the Increpación Danza and María Carbonell dance companies.
