De Innovatieprijs Nederlandse Dansdagen Maastricht
This year, the Innovatieprijs Nederlandse Dansdagen Maastricht will be awarded for the second time. Last year the prize, which stems from the two previous festival awards namely the Prijs van de Nederlandse Dansdagen Maastricht and the Prijs van de Nederlandse Dansdagen Jong Publiek, was introduced. The renewed incentive prize highlights innovative developments and extraordinary maker talent. With the coming together of the two prizes and additional support from the City of Maastricht, the new cash prize amounts to €25,000. This amount aims to give the winner more clout in producing their ideas. The new work or a look at the creation process will be presented for the first time during The Nederlandse Dansdagen 2024.
Winner of the Innovatieprijs 2022, Simon Bus, will show part of his new work during The Nederlandse Dansdagen 2023.More about the nominees
