Encounters in dance stories

Listen, speak, dance, and participate in lectures, exhibitions, open studios, debates, post performance talks, workshops, and package deals held as part of the festival theme New Stories. Meet the makers, immerse yourself in their work and share your experiences with them and other members of the public and create new dance stories. And for the dancers among you; in the inspiring workshop program you can learn new moves or get acquainted with the movement languages of various choreographers.

Preceding the festival various choreographers open their studio doors and invite you to take a rare look behind the scenes at their creative process. They show their work in progress and like to talk to you about the the process.

Immerse yourself in the CaDance experience with the festival package deals; you combine a delicious meal, meet & greets with artists and two performances. A great way to get through the cold winter days.

The package deals are on sale until one day before the event.

Me, Myshelf & I

For Me, MyShelf and I, choreographers are asked to fill a shelf with stories of their artistic identity. In Korzo theatre and Theater aan het Spui a veritable forest of cases arises, filled with books, films, props from performances, visual manifestos, and much more. The choreographers use their creativity to the fullest and create different universes you can wander through and penetrate deeper and deeper.

Pop-up stories

The shelves of Me, MyShelf and I serve as a source of inspiration for a mini-performance that students of various art academies will make in the course of one day. Around a performance you just might be treated to a pop-up presentation resulting from this creative pressure cooker with a wide variety of ingredients.

In addition to the performances CaDance also offers a series of Talks; meetings with artists, lectures, and an international debate about the future of hip-hop. After many performances, we open the dialogue in a relaxed atmosphere, where you can share your experiences with the dancers, the creatives, and each other.
