The Pocket Dance Festival is a 1 week dance festival that takes place for the first time in Thessaloniki from 7-15 September 2019, in an effort to promote the art form of contemporary dance.

Where: Studio 29A, Ptolemeon 29A, 54630, Thessaloniki, Greece

When: 7-15 September 2019

The Pocket Dance Festival is an initiative by the Greek dancers and choreographers Vicky Angelidou, Natasa Arabatzi and Alexandros Gkountinakis, with the support of local volunteers and artists. Guest Greek and international professional artists will participate and present their performances to the audience of Thessaloniki. In total, the artists come from Thessaloniki, Athens, Ioannina, Berlin, Brussels, Munich, Amsterdam, Budapest, Tilburg, Naples, Vienna, and London.
The artistic program includes Performances, Workshops and a Site-Specific Performance. All indoor performances will take place at and in collaboration with the artistic space Studio 29A.
We believe that the artists themselves can create the preconditions to communicate their art with the audience that will attend their performances. A very important aspect of the festival is cultural exchange between the participants through their live performances.
