Moldova Festival CONTACT Plus – Contact Improvisation and Performance
This is a special event, because Moldova is a magical and unusual place. Aside from deep dances, we will perform a lot and contemplate beauty together. This festival will be a space for movement exploring and searching for poetry in the meeting.
The program of intensives and labs in this year is super interesting and rich:

This year we want to be such a meeting space for dance and performance!
Via wild geese we have already sent news to amazing teachers and artists.
We specially traveled to the fields and danced in the rain in order to please you with a rich harvest during the festival.
We are preparing special surprises for those who come to us for the first time, and for those who already love us for a long time :-).
One of these gifts will be the opportunity to create performances together, as well as see the set theatrical and dance performances.
Warm days, a circle of friends, performances, jams and celebration are waiting for you!
