Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east


First Performances Festival 2015 Announced

Three performances of artists, familiar to Dancing on the Edge, will have their world premiere at the 2015 edition. Khalid BenGhrib’s Black Table (Morocco) – inspired by Kurt Jooss’ famous political ballet The Green Table – is about the rise and appeal of the Islamic State. Plastic of Meher Debbich Awachri (Tunisia) is a physical theater piece about a generation of young men stuck between East and West, between expectations and reality.
Nassim Soleimanpour (Iran) created with White Rabbit, Red Rabbit a theater show without set, director or rehearsals. With Blank he takes his artistic experiment to the next level: an unfinished story to be finished live on stage as a collaborative effort of performer, audience, and playwright.

Dancing on the Edge Festival 2015 takes place from 4 to 13 November in Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht, and Rotterdam. More information about the festival program will be announced in August.
