Dance Village is the biggest free Dance Festival in the South West, attracting huge audiences to enjoy an eclectic programme of contemporary performance, social and cultural dance. We transform our city centre location to take great art directly to audiences, programming a Main Stage, a public realm performance zone and a participation area. We programme inclusively; providing local and regional artists with opportunities to test work outdoors and reach new audiences and providing audiences the opportunity to see professional, nationally significant work alongside community and youth artists.

We aim to:

– Take great dance directly to audiences and create extraordinary experiences in a transformed public space

– Consolidate dance development work in Bristol through a high profile platform informed by partner consultation

– Provide strategic development through our annual commission focus – Create new opportunities for artists to test excerpts and new work on a broad section of the public

– Build the profile of dance in the city as a dynamic and diverse producing and programming hub Dance Village takes place at Bristol Harbour Festival.

Dates for 2017 are 22 & 23 July: http://www.bristolharbourfestival.co.uk/
