14th Summer Dance Festival 2017

20 – 30 July 2017, Limassol

This year’s 14th Summer Dance Festival by Nea Kinisi takes place in public and private venues in Limassol. This year’s edition aims to reach people with locations and conditions that foster the interactivity of the works and the public’s contact with the creative process. With four different categories, we invite the public to walk, get in touch with the artists in special and unique ways, but also to experience the city under a different prism.

The four categories, for which choreographers applied for, are:

*New Work: New works with a maximum duration 45 minutes.
*Durational Work: Works with a duration of 3 to 48 continuous hours.
*Living on Site: Works where the artist has chosen a space in which to ‘live’ in for a period of time.
*Recycle: Works that have been presented in the past are now re-visited in new spaces.


20 – 30 July 2017
*Elena Antoniou will begin her work on the 17th of July under the category Living on Site.
