Over the course of its nine previous editions, and despite its limited financial resources, the International Festival of Contemporary Dance in Athens, ARC FOR DANCE FESTIVAL, went the distance with perseverance and resilience, overcoming the difficulties of staging such an undertaking in Greece to meet the expectations of the broader dance community: it turned the promotion of new Greek choreographers into an institution (2008), introduced conceptual themes corresponding to current socio-political issues (2009: duality, 2010: interculturality, 2012: female identity, 2013: temporality, 2014: connectivity, 2015: mobility, 2016: diversity, 2017: transitionality), built partnerships with organizations, institutions and individuals and ultimately hosted artists and artworks from more than 15 different countries around the world.
The "International Festival of Contemporary Dance ARC FOR DANCE FESTIVAL"
