Programme / Venues

The programme will be updated and changed and more settled the closer we get to the festival. Check in here now and then to see what’s new.

Connecting to the roots of the dance is of great importance. All participants are encouraged to follow and take action of the following values:

– Be yourself
– Be open to improvisation
– Build relationships during the festival
– Have trust in yourself and in each other
– Show respect – to others, to the music and history, and to the space we create together
