DIES DE DANSA is an international contemporary dance festival in urban spaces. It is a free annual cultural project born in Barcelona, which is part of the GREC Festival de Barcelona. During five days buildings, streets, parks and plazas flood with life in this encounter between dance, urban space and community.
DIES DE DANSA takes place in different points of Barcelona, such as the Centre de Cultura Contemporónia de Barcelona (CCCB, Center for Contemporary Culture of Barcelona), the Fundació Joan Miró, the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA, Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona), the Pati Manning and the Picasso Museum; as well as in the cities of Mataró, Sabadell and Sitges. The daylight programme consists on the presentation of short performances that artists elaborate specifically for each place, with the participation of over 25 national and international companies. At night, the festival’s meeting point, both for professionals and the general public, is the ESPAI EN MOVIMENT (space in motion) at the Pati de les Dones in CCCB, with solo performances, video projections, bar and chill out.
DIES DE DANSA also programmes TALLERS PER A LA COMUNITAT (workshops for the community), a series of free dance workshops suitable to professionals and amateurs, and the workshops DANSA EN FAM?LIA (dance within the family), which throughout experimentation, creativity and research, stimulates the emotional bonds in a fun way.
