ON BODIES FESTIVAL | 16-19 MAY 2024

DANCEHOUSE LEFKOSIA

 

Dance House Lefkosia organizes the On Bodies festival 2024 which takes place on the 16th – 19th of May 2024. On Bodies is one of the most significant dance and performance festivals in Cyprus, with various contemporary performance practices that use choreography and the body as a medium of artistic exploration. Through its 16 years of existence, it has given the opportunity to many creators and groups of the island to take their first artistic steps and present their work to a wide audience.

For 2024, the theme of the festival is HEALING: the process of treating a wound, the support in overcoming a trauma, the recovery to a pain-free mental or physical state. Dealing with trauma, and more specifically with collective trauma and its residues, is something that needs attention and understanding, especially in areas that have experienced conflict and aggression, such as Cyprus.

This year’s programme includes proposals from young and established artists from Cyprus and abroad that will take place on the main stage, in the garden and outdoor space of Dance House Lefkosia, as well as in collaborating venues.

In the frame of the festival and in collaboration with EDN – European Dance Development Network and Dance Gate Lefkosia- Cyprus we will have the Atelier Healing: Becoming Well Again with talks, discussions, workshops, curated walks and performative happenings.
