Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east


Festival 2017

Cutting edge dance, theater and art installations showcased 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 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, the 2017 program had a strong focus on new work and (ongoing) artistic research. Times that ask for new theatrical languages and innovative festival formats: the 2017 edition saw Skype performances, a performance at sea (in winter!), an international exchange between Dutch and Lebanese theater companies and a Meet the Artist lab.
