The winners will tour together in DansClick 20 in the autumn of 2018.
[…] During a residency at Cloud dance / lab in The Hague, he made Essential Rights. The jury on Fernando Troya: “With three male dancers, Troya exposes a world in which there is much to contend. Camaraderie as well as betrayal, conflict as well as rapprochement, sportsmanship and despair. A grim, physical trio that reveals itself step by step and that the spectator presents a course in which you can not help but go along and sympathize. ”
