Started in 2012 TRACES is a annual professional educational platform for dance and choreographic practice based in Cotonou, Benin.
TRACES focuses on the study of the Axis Syllabus and complementary subjects (music for dancers, dance-video, dance history, professional ethic)
The intention is to furnish knowledge, skills and experience, adapting our strategies to the social - political context of Benin and simultaneously create a context of exchange in which participants can find and structure a language from their own experience. Our foundational focus are: to provide tools, to structure and stimulate individual creativity, to experiment with cross-disciplinary media and communication, probe the interaction and impact that different art-forms amd cultures can have on each other.
TRACES is open to dancers of all nationalities who have a background in any movement discipline but specifically targets dancers resident in Africa, particularly in Benin. Every year there are few places reserved for dancers from abroad, such as artists that have a strong interest in inter-cultural exchange and/or Axis Syllabus research. A selection will be made on the basis of a written curriculum vitae and a motivation letter.
