We are delighted to introduce the second edition of Dance Bridges Festival. In 2016, Dam Van Huynh was appointed Co-Director of Dance Bridges Festival alongside Festival Director Vanessa Maria Mirza, committing to further support this truly special project. Dance Bridges Festival is an international dance festival with an emphasis on building artistic and cultural exchanges between international and local dance artists, showcasing and promoting cutting-edge and exciting contemporary choreography through live performances and film screenings.

We are extremely proud to present this year’s programme with 70 artists from 17 countries visiting Kolkata to present their work and lead workshops for local artists and audience members. Van Huynh Company will also lead the Choreographic Residency over two weeks with local and international dancers leading to a final presentation of the work in progress as part of a Site specific performance at Daga Nikunj. We will also present a Duet “Under This Weight” as well as some of our repertoire in collaboration with artists of the Festival (Crossover Project).

Please join us in Kolkata between 22-29 August to share some time with us in this unique city and discover some truly special artists.
