This spectacular event is one of the most important regular celebrations of dance art in the Nordic countries. In addition to dance performances, the festival week will feature dozens of dance courses, street events, club evenings, parades and other attractions. The Artistic Director of Kuopio Dance Festival is the leading dancer and choreographer Jorma Uotinen.
The next Dance Mania will be arranged at the turn of September and October 2019. This festival of new folk music and dance will deliver a generous helping of serious training, splendid concerts, fresh dance works, encounters and experiences. As the name suggests, our folk dance refinery seminar will be a dance heritage laboratory for examining new dance perspectives.
For a full six days Dance Current presents artists from the pinnacle of Finnish contemporary dance in a thorough review of the present state of this art form. Besides impressive stage productions, the programme includes dance video presentations, public discussions, a club event series, and specially commissioned city performances by the Dance Current Dance Artist of the Year.
