15th On Bodies Dance & Performance Arts Festival

Dance House Lefkosia

19th -21st of May 2023

19:00

 

This year, the On Bodies festival takes place on 19-21 May with works to be presented on the main stage and in the garden of the Dance House Lefkosia. After the open call, the committee selected works by young and established artists based in Cyprus and abroad, presenting an insight into contemporary creation with current themes and practices.

Through a feminist lens, contemporary choreographic practices and performative processes, the festival creates a frame for an experiential journey through sensitivity, struggle, and healing. The works embody moments of fragility, coming of age and dreamlike awakening, figures of women warriors and radical femininities, remnants of sound and loss, rhythmic explorations, interchanges with the other self and finally, states of quiet empowerment.
