Dance Bridges Festival 2017: Artist Previews

Dance Bridges proudly presents the preview of the programme for the second edition of the Festival. The theme for this year’s curation is New Panoramas, ‘In you I see my dance’. Selections for the Festival have been made by the International Artistic & Programming Committee based in London, Taipei & Kolkata.
The event will take place between 22nd-29th August 2017 in Kolkata, India with a few projects starting earlier in the month. A wide range of international artists who will be performing, teaching workshops, sharing films and special talks. Dance Bridges is honored to welcome artists from Israel, France, India, Taiwan, United States of America, United Kingdom and many more nationalities.
Two new initiatives for this edition are the Internship programme and the Crossover Dance Project.  The internships are for young arts professionals/ college level students interested in acquiring hands on training in Festival Management. The Crossover Dance project looks at working with a collective from local and Festival artists to recreate an excerpt of a choreography by an international artist.
A special focus is also put on the celebration of the 25 years of “Growing Partnership” between Israel and India and the UK-India Year of Culture celebrating 70 years of cultural relations between the two countries.
Join us in Kolkata for the event. The Festival will take place across an array of venues, large theaters, intimate spaces, studios, galleries, cinemas and auditoriums, details of which will be published soon.
