The city is a stage. Its buildings, its streets, its squares and its people perform in it.

And the public space reveals itself as the ideal ground for the artists to express the contemporary artistic creation, to unfold the ideas and images of contemporary dance, to exchange knowledge, inspiration and visions, to colour the city.

The artists of an urban dance festival change the entire image of the city, without ever interfering in it!

The city transforms into a platform for communicating ideas, into a fountain of creative stimulations, a meeting point and common frame of reference for dancers and spectators.

The festival takes place everywhere in the city. In its squares and streets, in familiar public buildings.

The urban landscape thus embodies both dancers and spectators: anyone present in the city of Corfu during the festival can watch the events – and maybe even participate in them.
