A digital platform for international coproduction

NAVE, creation and residency center in Santiago de Chile, invites you to TACTO, a space to answer questions, be together and think on connections and relations in this new present.

TACTO is a digital contemporary dance platform that gathers a group of Chilean co-producers who have united to present 15 national artists.

TACTO is a place directed to professionals interested in knowing and approaching Chilean contemporary dance. With TACTO, Nave wants to make known the creative universes and processes that today are being co-produced by local institutions that seek to add future collaborations and international matchmakers.

Last but not least, TACTO is a place for encounters. The world is changing and we believe it to be fundamental to take advantage of digital formats in order to talk and rethink our job as programmers which cross frontiers and countries.

The program contemplates the presentation of  projects and the creation of work tables with innovative methodologies which will help participants to think together about the challenges of the future.

Join the conversation on 3rd November
