MAP TO THE STARS - European Commission
the European Commission's
The Ballet National de Marseille has received support in 2017 from the European Commission’s framework programme Creative Europe to run the collaborative and innovative Map to the Stars project in partnership with the Netherlands (ICK), Spain (Mercat de les Flors) and Italy (Museo dei Bambini).
For a period of two years, the project will lead to the creation of a digital teaching tool to develop creativity among children by raising their awareness of dance and new technologies.
Under the artistic direction of choreographer Eric Minh Cuong Castaing (Cie Shonen) and in collaboration with the digital developer Manuvo, the Silk Fluegge dance company and teams of dancers and teachers from each country, Map to the Stars will initially be aimed at children at school in the partner countries.
