For a second consecutive year, the inclusive dance platform Kyma Project organises
KYMA Festival 2019
“χορο-θετώντας αισθήσεις”
in collaboration with the Theater of Athens School of Fine Arts which will be held May 9th to 10th, 2019.
KYMA Festival is a universally accessible festival devoted to inclusive dance.
Taking the baton from KYMA FESTIVAL 2018 this year’s festival returns even more renewed, creating a wave of dancing for dancers and spectators.
In the framework of this year’s programme including 4 seminars and 3 performances, the two-day KYMA Festival 2019 aims to build a wide experience for participants and viewers who will be able, not only to become familiar with contemporary dance creations, but also to activate their instincts and their interpretative skills while they set their senses throughout the space they are in.
Ensuring high-quality educational content and reinforcing the creative potential of the city of Athens with significant artistic stimuli is one of the key issues addressed in this year’s KYMA Festival 2019.
