The eighth edition of Dancing on the Edge Festival will take place in spring 2022. The organisers are looking for contemporary dance and theatre performances as well as multimedia and performance installations / films / artworks / artistic research / podcasts and so on.
Dancing on the Edge Festival 2022 is working with the proposition Rituals of Change. Ritual to reach back, to acknowledge where we come from and where we are now, to recognise what we want to change. To draw the future towards us. Ritual to pay homage, transform, and celebrate. To mark loss and pain, to (un)map and embody, to bring magic and imagination to our encounters with each other and our surroundings.
The festival is expected to take a hybrid form of offline presentations and performances, participatory and site-specific programs, as well as (live) online performances, events and engagement. This hybrid form offers new potential for participation.
Applicant artists/groups should identify as from, or in relation to, the Middle East and North Africa, and/or to the theme Rituals of Change. Work presented in-person may either be for theatre, or for non-traditional venues such as site-specific locations, community venues, etc.
