Dancing on
the Edge

Dancing on the Edge is pressing the reset button. To offer a better opportunity to meet and interact on a deeper level, we are deconstructing the festival format. With the soft radicality of open questions.

Dancing on the Edge is a platform that moves between different borders, bodies, histories and (pre)conceptions. In its working processes and programming, it attempts to challenge singular narratives and identities in representation as well as dominant power structures and (post)colonial relations. Every two years, we invite our audiences for a festival – to embark with us on a personal and collective journey through the different programs, to unpack themes and urgencies, and to undergo the potentials of the encounter that the festival can provide.

The seventh edition of Dancing on the Edge Festival took place from 13 till 24 November 2019 in The Netherlands. Read more about the festival here or read our reflection on it afterwards
