A dynamic and diverse platform, Open Stage presents a curated mixed bill of seven works selected from over 260 submissions. Through the unique movement vocabularies and perspectives of these global artists, explore self-identity, cultural relations, and societal norms; relish virtuosity, camaraderie, and fantastical worlds.
