DOTE invites you to a year of listening.

To listen to personal and collective grief, our colonial heritage, how we are complicit and entangled, our embodied knowledge, to nature. Listening means not having to ‘know’, control, or fix everything.

Dancing on the Edge

Dancing on the Edge is an artistic platform and festival that moves between different borders, bodies, histories and (pre)conceptions. We seek to challenge singular narratives with exciting and new artistic formats to engage both artists and spectators.

We are based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and work both locally and globally, specifically –but not exclusively- with artists and practitioners from the West Asia and North Africa region and its diaspora. Dancing on the Edge (DOTE) curates multidisciplinary festivals, organizes ongoing programs, offers opportunities for professionals, and we have our own Online Magazine!
Please go to How We Work… to read about our values and focus points, how we are (de-)constructing the festival (and platform) to embrace collective experience, and how we see form and content as intertwined.

Announcing: DOTE Festival year of listening 

In September, December, March and June. Decentralized, entangled, in resonance, incomplete and following another rhythm.

Starting with the week-long program Walking with Grief, 18-24 September 2022. Taking place where you are.
