Stretch expands Keðja – Dance professionals’ next encounter in October 2019


STRETCH brings together dance professionals from the Nordic and European countries and aims to tackle some of the urgent structural and professional issues in the field. Stretch encounter will be organised in Turku, Finland, 17th to 20th October 2019. Save the date and stay tuned for more information.

The encounter is built on the experience and community that was created during the earlier Keðja encounters. STRETCH expands the idea and themes of Keðja by stretching skills, the workfield and its structures.

The main theme of the STRETCH encounter is Expanding Professionalism. Through seminars, lectures, panels and workshops STRETCH aims to find new strategies to be relevant to the audience and communities – locally, regionally and internationally.

The dance community from all Nordic countries and beyond come together to discuss, share best practices, give new ideas and network in a three day meeting.

The focus is on three thematic areas of development:

1) Personal development and new skills
2) New ways of organising productions
3) Interaction with the community and better communication about dance

Save the date, and come and join us in Turku to expand your professionalism, enjoy performances, give and receive peer support, and network with local and international professionals!
