Kuopio Dance Festival is held 14.-20. June. The versatile programme of the festival includes not only many touching performances but also moments full of comedy. The programme for the young is also getting additions: there will be a brand new Children’s Gala.
Salia Sanou from Burkina Faso and Bruno Beltrão from Brazil offer interesting performances, which explore themes such as equality in society.
- Performances this year speak above all on behalf of equality and humanity, describes Riku Lehtopolku, the artistic director of the festival.
Jasmine Morand’s LUMEN is a visual experience, where a mirror is used above dancers. Alexander Vantournhout presents a duet, that combines circus and dance. Cristiana Morganti mesmerizes with a ironic, tragicomic solo.
In addition, the festival includes lots of amazing performances from Finnish and international dancers and dance groups, galas and interesting events.
