12TH DAYS OF DANCE

In 2020 the pandemic forced us to cancel our annual Days of Dance. This year the uncertainty associated with holding an event featuring a lineup of guest performers from abroad means that we will celebrate the rescheduled 12th Days of Dance more modestly than usual and in our own company only. Join us on 13–17 November 2021 for the first run of the new Polish double bill Exodus | Flights-Harnasie by Anna Hop and Izadora Weiss.
