Beyond Front@ – Bridging new territories

The  2-year project, Beyond Front@: Bridging New Territories, will employ dance-related activities to build physical, social a
and creative bridges between:

  1. dance artists in big and small cities;
  2. new “Bridge Partners” in other parts of Europe in order to open the Beyond Front@ network to new ideas and talent;
  3. dance and other related artistic mediums – video, photography, visual arts, writing, architecture, design – in order to: connect artists; enhance the language of dance; foster artistic creations and develop dance sensibility; expose dance to diverse audiences and presenting contexts;
  4. audiences in different countries, improving access to dance arts, engaging them in dialogues around their respective understanding and perception of dance;
  5. different social groups, through these experiences around dance, will better understand each other and accept their differences.

The co-organising partners in Slovenia, Austria, Croatia, Hungary, the United Kingdom and their associate “bridge” partners in Greece, Serbia, Slovakia, Italy and Portugal believe that, as primarily a non verbal art form, dance has a unique capacity to unite artists and people across Europe. United by a shared belief in the power of dance the partnership will produce a dynamic programme of co-productions and networking opportunities, mobilising dancers and audiences, across Europe.
