The partners of Aerowaves, a Creative Europe-supported European Platform, have unveiled the list of emerging artists from 17 countries across Europe who have been selected who have been selected to make up the Aerowaves Twenty for 2016. Following an an intensive weekend of watching videos and discussing the work of the choreographers back in October in La Briqueterie in Vitry-sur-Seine, these promising younger choreographers have been chosen from a list of hundreds of choreographers who had submitted applications to the annual open call.
