Expanding the movement - take part in the conversation

Dance network Keðja’s partners have put together a two-day programme full of keynotes, presentations, conversations, webinars and dance parties taking place on 20-21 of August online. The programme is free for dance professionals from all over the world. 

STRETCH c / o EDITION will replace the Gothenburg event scheduled for August, bringing together dance professionals remotely. The registration for the online Stretch is now open HERE.

Stretch 2020 is an international online encounter for dancers, choreographers, presenters, producers, marketers, institutions, organisations, developers, residencies, project managers and policymakers. The encounter continues the activities of the Nordic-Baltic dance network keđja established in 2008.

See the programme HERE.

Meeting and expanding your knowledge with the Nordic dance community

What is Stretch?

The encounter is built on the experience and community that was built during the keðja encounters from 2008 to 2015. STRETCH expands the idea and themes of keðja by stretching skills, the workfield and its structures.

The Nordic dance community expands its professional networks by inviting colleague organisations and professionals from Baltic and European countries to participate.
