In collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts, Dutch Dance Festival organises an online edition of the Moving Meetings professionals' programme. Through a specially designed digital dance workshop, the festival facilitates encounters between international presenters and Dutch dance companies, makers and choreographers. Dutch Dance Festival takes places online from 1-8 October 2020.
The digital workshop developed by Dutch Dance Festival is exclusively accessible to international presenters and Dutch dance companies, makers and choreographers. Its use and impact extends beyond this year's festival, as it will serve as a long-term platform to introduce international dance professionals to the rich spectrum of dance from the Netherlands.
The digital Moving Meetings programme runs from 2-4 October.
