ImPulsTanz is a partner of the new European Dance Award SEDA


We are happy to announce our partnership with the newly established SEDA Salavisa European Dance Award!

Every two years – starting in 2024 – the SEDA Salavisa European Dance Award honours emerging artists or collectives from around the world who demonstrate a special talent or unique qualities in dance and whose significance goes beyond their personal context and national borders. The winner(s) will be selected by an international jury from a maximum of 21 nominations (three from each of the partner institutions). In addition to prize money of 150,000 euro, the winner(s) will also have the opportunity to present their work on the stages of the partner network’s cultural institutions. A total of seven European cultural institutions are joining forces for the award, which was created out of a desire to honor the Portuguese dancer, educator and cultural manager Jorge Salavisa, who died in 2020. Other than ImPulsTanz, these include the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon, the Dansehallerne in Copenhagen, Joint Adventures in Munich, the K.V.S. in Brussels, the Maison de la Danse/Biennale de la Danse in Lyon and Sadler’s Wells in London. Another partner is the Kees Eijrond Foundation.

The first award ceremony will take place on 27 November 2024 at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon.
