Dance Base Festival 22

Dance Base Festival 22
Join us this August as 33 companies from 12 countries present 39 dance and physical theatre shows exploring and celebrating life and the human condition #DanceBaseFestival

The convention-defying showcase features diverse dance forms, often reinvented, from Butoh and Kathak, through ballet and tap dancing to street dance.

This is the final festival programme curated by Morag Deyes who led Dance Base as Artistic Director between 1994 and 2021.

"Seems like we are all breaking through into a new truth, growing without ossifying, unpretentious, powerful, connected and passionate – our 2022 programme is full of visionary artists, their hopes and fears and genuine love for the planet, their art form, us. This year we fearlessly shake up conventions, explore differences and offer you dance that creates the potential for real change."
Morag Deyes, Festival Curator
