Dancing on the Edge
Dancing on the Edge is an artistic platform and festival that moves between different borders, bodies, histories and (pre)conceptions. We seek to challenge singular narratives with exciting and new artistic formats to engage both artists and spectators. We are based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and work both locally and globally, specifically –but not exclusively- with artists and practitioners from the West Asia and North Africa region and its diaspora. Dancing on the Edge (DOTE) curates multidisciplinary festivals, organizes ongoing programs and offers opportunities for professionals.
DOTE Magazine is a publication of Dancing on the Edge. Are you interested in contributing? You can read more about this in the footer.
