8th Athens International Dance Festival
City of Athens |

The Athens International Dance Festival, organized by the City of Athens Cultural Organisation, has enjoyed a most successful course, leaving an indelible mark on the capital’s cultural events calendar each year.

The 8th festival, to be staged in the City of Athens Technopolis (100 Pireos St, Gazi) courtyard from July 1 to 18, will present some of Europe’s best dance troupes, once again with the same goal: to emphasise the way that contemporary dance, which is unencumbered by the techniques and principles of classical dance and the perspectives inspired by classical ballet which evolved in the early 20th century, today interests more and more people.

The Festival’s Artistic Director Margo Perdiki this year chose to invite three significant dance troupes, from Spain, Norway and Germany. The Gelabert Azzopardi Companyia de Danse from Barcelona will present the works “Sense fi” and “Conquassabit”, Norway’s Jo Stromgren Kompani will present “A Dance Tribute to the art of football” for the first time while Germany’s Folkwang Tanzstudio will present “Frauenballet” and “Schimmer”.

Greece’s Oktana Dance Theatre will participate once again in the Athens Festival (indeed throughout the festival), presenting Konstantinos Rigos’ latest work, entitled “Dressed Undressed”.
