Expanding the movement - take part in the conversation

We create art to open opportunities for a dialogue with the world. How can we keep expanding that conversation?

The theme of the Encounter is Expanding the movement and it addresses the relationship between art and society, participation, community art, dramaturgy, communication, international work, film as a tool, touring and audiences.

Professionals from all over the dance field will gather for talks, discussions, workshops, morning classes, performances and to network with colleagues.

Important note

The Cultural Development Administration is cancelling Keđja presents STRETCH – Gothenburg 2020 on August 20–22.

This is in consideration of information and recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden to events organisers regarding the current spread of the corona virus and covid-19.

Parts of the conference will be presented in other formats. More information will come shortly.

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.
