Migrant Bodies is a project created in partnership between Comune di Bassano del Grappa (Italy), La Briqueterie - Centre de développement chorégraphique du Val de Marne (France), Circuit-Est centre chorégraphique (Québec), The Dance Centre (British Columbia) and HIPP The Croatian Institute for Dance and Movement (Croatia). Migrant Bodies uses artistic tools to share a civil reflection on migrations and the cultural impact and differences they bring, seen as sources of values and richness for the whole European and Canadian societies. The project invites 16 artists (6 choreographers/dancers, 5 writers, 5 visual artists) from three European countries and two Canadian provinces to carry out two years of research on migrations and the social and cultural impacts that migrations generate in local societies, in order to produce works to be staged in established and renowned venues, or in site specific locations, and to portray new forms of identity of the migrant bodies to the wider possible audience. The project is supported by the EU Culture 2007-13 Programme
