STORY WATER, a collaboration between Emanuel Gat Dance and Frankfurt’s renown Ensemble Modern, has just been shortlisted for the Fedora Van Cleef & Arpels Prize for Ballet 2018. Obviously this is very exciting news and I’d be thrilled if you help to support our production with your vote on!

Fedora is a platform that is cofounded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union and that was established to secure the future of opera and ballet by providing visibility and funding to innovative productions in both fields. In times of diminishing public funding, Fedora has brought two prizes into being that are awarded to promising teams of co-producing partners and artists who collaborate to create new works that move their art forms forward.

By voting for STORY WATER you can help to turn our spot on the shortlist into an official nomination. Eventually, the winning production will receive an additional 100.000€ funding to continue their work.
