Thirty-two eclectic artists present work that sets out in new or not fashionable directions, challenges the definition of dance and takes us out of our comfort zones. It’s a mix-up of local, national, and international artist early, late, or just right in the middle of their careers. Performance Mix is not just a festival, it is a community of dance, performance and video artists from contrasting backgrounds and genres. And you are invited to visit our community.
