The International Contemporary Dance Festival, “Dance Days Chania” is investing in the people, body, dancer, creator and reminding us that dance is everywhere and concerns us all. Dance is embedded in every big or small movement, in sounds, in music and in silence; in every habit and every desire of our daily lives, of the difficulty as well as the simplicity that is enclosed in actions and thoughts. The festival focuses on the development of diversity, innovation and pluralism.

Emphasis is also given to active community participation and the integration and development of its urban fabric, with sitespecific projects, performances and events which take place at various pointsin the city and comprising its elements.
