This is Not a Festival
This week-long event is for anyone wishing to immerse themselves in contemporary dance and art. It includes performances, installations, jams, screenings and lectures. This political ‘object’ aims to fight the standardised and systematised commoditisation of the arts. It’s not too easy to define what it is exactly, but one thing is clear. This is NOT a Festival!
