East European Performing Arts Platform (EEPAP) Small Grants Programme 2016 Beneficiaries:
Situations explore how dance can be inclusive, inviting and participatory, without compromising its philosophical and aesthetical potentialities, and be less of a perform-watch game. Situations is an attempt to apply our principles of how we work within our contemporary dance practice into a dance or a structure which could be open to everyone of any age, where all kinds of people can dance/be together and share the pleasure of moving/choreographing.
