The jury was pleased with the success of the first edition of the Fuenlabrada Choreographic Residencies. A total of 39 projects were presented. Of these, 28 were led by women and 11 by men. Of these projects, 24 are in contemporary dance, 13 in Spanish dance and flamenco, and 2 in classical dance.
The jury appreciated the quality of the projects presented and the relevance of the candidates, underlining the interest of the young talents.
After the corresponding deliberations, the jury unanimously agreed that the choreographic residencies be awarded to the following projects:
1.- CREATION RESIDENCIES
- Knock. Essay on memory by Tangen Benzal

In keeping with the philosophy of the María Pagés Choreography Centre, whose work is based on the experience and values of its founder, the jury decided to create a new category of residencies under the name Proyecto Ballena (Whale Project). The fundamental objective of the latter is to welcome and accompany young creators, offering them not only spaces but also creative, technical, and administrative advice.
The following projects have been selected for the Whale Project:

- Encajas? by Júlia Gimeno, Nuria Martínez and Virginia Muñoz – Danza3
The Fuenlabrada Choreographic Residences are an initiative developed by the María Pagés Choreographic Centre, in collaboration with Fuenlabrada City Council. The programmatic alliance of these two institutions seeks, on the one hand, to vindicate dance as one of the essential expressions of culture in Spain and, on the other, to promote research, creation, and reflection on the world of choreography in Fuenlabrada, on a regional, national and international level.
The residency program supports choreographic creation projects in all its disciplines and vindicates dance, promoting its creative spaces committed to citizenship.
