TAGS: Dance, Festival

Alleys, public squares, archaeological sites and stages all across Hania are gearing up to host performances and seminars for the ninth installment of the Dance Days festival. More than 115 choreographers, artists and theorists from different disciplines are heading to the Cretan city from different parts of the world to present a panorama of new trends in modern dance, creating a discourse with the location and the island’s cultural heritage. The opening on Monday features acclaimed choreographer Andonis Foniadakis who has teamed up with composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist Antonis Martsakis and an ensemble of traditional instrument players for a tribute to the music and dances of Crete at the Eastern Moat. On Tuesday at the Venizleio Conservatory, the Marseilles-based Compagnie Warren presents “Abstenia.” For more information, visit www.dancedays.gr.
