27th Summer Universiade in Kazan,

July 6-17 2013

UNI-reserve, UNI-elite

Cultural life of Kazan’s youth is entwined with the forthcoming Universiade. Most stage performances delivered by young talents are more and more often dedicated to an intercultural dialogue, sports and a healthy way of life. Talent show participants and festival entrants are involved in the preparations of the 27th World University Games. They devote poems, songs, choreography sketches and even rap performances to the Universiade.

Alongside athletes’ training, the Kazan 2013 Organising Committee builds a Uni-reserve and Uni-elite pools. The Uni-reserve pool will include beginners that make their first step on stage, but they already proved themselves. And the Uni-elite pool will comprise those who already earned the recognition both of the audience and experts in performing arts. In search for talented youth, the Kazan 2013 Executive Directorate representatives became the most attentive spectators of the largest youth talent shows, traditionally held in Tatarstan.

It’s essential that the project implies a multi-genre performance which allows to select pop, rock and rap singers, variety and folk dancers, drama actors, bitboxers and instrumental musicians.

In 2011 the Kazan 2013 Executive Directorate introduced special UNI-RESERVE and UNI-ELITE nominations in programmes of the following festivals: Galaxy-Yoldyzlyk, Spring Twists and Turns 2011, Spring Dripping 2011, Noon Recess 2011, Yagymly Yaz 2010, Energy of Rock, Rock Wave and Student Spring.

Winners will be awarded the main prize, an opportunity to become part of the cultural events scheduled for the preparations and delivery of the 2013 Summer Universiade, including Opening/Closing Ceremonies of the 2013 World University Summer Games.
