From 20 March 2020, Moving Futures will travel to nine cities and bring innovative dance to the theatre in various Dutch neighbourhoods.
Please note that the festival is partially cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
A unique festival
Moving Futures is an initiative of five (talent)developers in contemporary dance – Dansmakers Amsterdam (EDN member), Dansateliers Rotterdam (EDN member), DansBrabant Tilburg (EDN member), Random Collision Groningen and Generale Oost Arnhem. By creating a nationally widespread network and by joining forces with local theatres and partners, the dance houses try to create more exposure possibilities for the work of emerging choreographers on a national scale.

Be surprised by the passionate, cheeky and barrier-breaking dance makers and performers of today. See how the future moves them and how they move the future. In presentations, pop-up performances, installations, workshops, dance films and parties, the audience will experience dance from all perspectives.
This sixth edition pays tribute to hope, not as naive trust but as an energetic look ahead. The hope of a new generation of boundless and fearless makers.
