The performances form the core of the festival: solo works and large ensembles, narrative dance theatre and pure movement, pieces for children and unusual performances alternate in a rich programme. The aim is to present the diversity of the current international dance scene, which is characterised by its high level of creativity. A special focus of the festival is the closeness between audience and artists. The workshops, which are aimed at interested amateurs and professional dancers, are therefore an integral part of the festival, as are the audience discussions, which encourage exchange after the performances. Concerts, dance films, installations and DJs complement the programme and invite you to linger in Schiffbauergasse.
