Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east

Festival

Festival 2017

Cutting edge dance, theater and art installations showcase the artistic exchange between Europe, the Middle East and North Africa during Dancing on the Edge Festival 2017 in 4 Dutch cities from 8 till 18 November. Dancing on the Edge is home to everything that crosses the border: a platform cultural merging, bold art and adventurous visitors. 

Dancing on the Edge believes in the power of art as a laboratory to experiment, meet, and at times touch upon the more sensitive parts of our societies. Asking questions instead of looking for easy answers. Without ready-made solutions, but with an eye for complexity, multi-dimensionality, fluidity, and above all humanity. Therefore, this year’s program has a strong focus on new work and (ongoing) artistic research.

The 6th edition of the festival marks the 10 year anniversary of Dancing on the Edge. In the past 10 years the festival has brought high quality, international performing arts to The Netherlands, showing a diverse and multi-layered side of the Middle East. We’ve arrived at a moment in time where borders are on the one hand fading, and at the other hand tightened. Times that ask for new theatrical languages and innovative festival formats, including Skype performances, exciting encounters on stage and the need for more open spaces. We invite you to make it happen together with us!
