Program

This 31st edition of Julidans presents work by choreographers who are not afraid of experimentation and are in search of a language of their own. This year's performances make statements about the times we live in or offer possibilities for the future. -|- On the Julidans stages, the dance makers confront us with their visions. They give us something to believe in. Hopeful or apocalyptic, feminist or fantastic. The imaginative power of dance is used to make us rethink themes such as (gender) identity, human relationships, and climate.
