We are proud to present you the new brand identity of Dancing on the Edge (DOTE) and our new website. As of January 2022, DOTE is feeling fresh and ready for a new chapter. Have fun exploring!

Dancing on the Edge

Dancing on the Edge is an artistic platform and festival that moves between different borders, bodies, histories and (pre)conceptions. We seek to challenge singular narratives with exciting and new artistic formats to engage both artists and spectators.

We are based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and work both locally and globally, specifically –but not exclusively- with artists and practitioners from the West Asia and North Africa region and its diaspora. Every two years, we invite our audiences for a multidisciplinary and multi-city festival to embark with us on a personal and collective journey unpacking themes and urgencies. We present and (co-)produce work and programs that are original, layered and relevant. Our next festival will take place in 2022. We are working with the overarching theme Rituals of Change for this festival and in the months leading up to it.

Beyond the festival, there is an ongoing program of performances, gatherings, collaborative projects and online workshops throughout the year. Dancing on the Edge (DOTE) also offers opportunities for professionals, and we have our own Online Magazine!

Please go to How We Work… to read about our values and focus points, how we are (de-)constructing the festival (and platform) to embrace collective experience, and how we see form and content as intertwined.

“The future of our civil societies lies in true connection and this is exactly what Dancing on the Edge aims to do. Connection between interdisciplinary and international artists, between the audience and artists (we are all experts), but also connecting to oneself” – Artist Festival 2019

    In October 2021 we started a research series called Rituals of Change which follows on from an online workshop series we initiated in 2020. In the research series, we move between online and offline, inside and outside spaces, but always with a desire to build communities that move beyond colonial/capitalist and consumerist realities in order […]
