Event Details

danceGATHERING is a two weeks long process based gathering, which ends with five days of contemporary dance performances. Other events include master classes, seminars, dance/photo exhibition, dance magazine launch, award giving ceremony, dance film screening, jam session and a command performance of the outcome of the two weeks long workshop. The intensive training is targeted at emerging choreographers and arts administrators, focusing on the thought process of imagining and conceiving contemporary dance works for the theater, while the festival is aimed at the promotion and presentation of the art of contemporary dance to a larger Lagos and international audience, with the aim of educating about dance, its language, as it records time and the instability of daily life, as it embodies memory and explores social, political, historical and contemporary issues.
