For eight days and nights, choreographers and dancers that are based and work in Cyprus, present their dance performances at public venues in Limassol town centre, as part of the yearly Summer Dance Festival by Nea Kinisi. The audience has the opportunity to enjoy a number of performances and durational happenings at pre-determined but also at pop-up spaces like, pedestrian ways and squares, at the seaside and at urban points in Limassol town centre.
The Summer Dance Festival is yearly funded by the Cultural Services of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth and is organised by Nea Kinisi – Cyprus New Movement for Dance Companies, Dancers and Choreographers – with the support of the Municipality of Limassol.
The Summer Dance Festival is an important institution both for the professional dance community and the city of Limassol. For eight days people have the opportunity to walk around Limassol, interact with artists and their work in special and unique ways. During the preparation of the works, people will have the chance to see rehearsals, get in contact with the creation process and interact with the artists. This festival is an excellent opportunity to highlight the culture that the dance community has to offer, both for residents and visitors of Limassol. In addition, the structure of the festival enhances the sense of community, while offering a way to see and get to know the city through a different prism.
