During the 2017 edition of Moving Futures, the festival will also travel to Zwolle. On 19 and 20 of May, 2017 we will end this edition with an extensive dance program at Odeon Theatre, one of the locations of Zwolle Theaters. Programmer Stella van Leeuwen (Zwolle Dance Theatre) about the new collaboration:
I am very proud that I am able to bring Moving Futures to Zwolle. With the festival we can put Zwolle, next to several other major cities, on the Dutch dance map. Moving Futures is a mini festival presenting the work of upcoming choreographers. An initiative by a network of danceproductionhouses that are still present in the Netherlands. With the festival the choreographers will get the chance to show their work to a larger audience. The production houses have joined forces and started this festival some years ago, with success. As a upcoming choreographers do not get the opportunity to regularly show their work, there is a risk that their talents are lost. In Zwolle their will be two exciting days with performances and an in-depth and edgy context program.
During the Zwolle edition Moving Futures presents performances by, among others: Lana Coporda Igor Vrebac, Jasper Luijk and Jija Sohn. Framed by an diverse context program with Cinedans films, after talks and meet & greets.
