Dancing on the Edge/DOTE Magazine
DOTE Magazine is a publication initiated by Dancing on the Edge. Want to contribute? Read the footer of this page.
Dancing on the Edge is an artistic platform that moves between different borders, bodies, disciplines, histories and (pre)conceptions. In its working processes and programming, it attempts to challenge singular narratives and identities in representation as well as dominant power structures and (post)colonial relations.
Dancing on the Edge is based in Amsterdam, and works both locally and globally, especially with artists and practioners from the Middle East and North Africa and its diaspora.
Every two years, we invite our audiences for a multidisciplinary and multi-city festival to embark with us on a personal and collective journey, to unpack themes and urgencies, and to undergo the potentials of the encounter that the festival can provide. The next festival will be in Spring 2022. Besides the festival, there is ongoing programming throughout the year, like performances, exchange projects, and online workshops. Besides that, we offer opportunities for professionals, such as training and residencies. Check out the website of Dancing on the Edge here.
