Esplanade Presents


people of da:ns

12 – 23 Oct 2022


(Intermission: None)


This event is over.


For the past 17 years, da:ns festival has been an annual celebration of the joy and wonder of movement—from presenting some of the most exciting and renowned dancers and companies, to supporting the development of regional and local artists, and being a place where everybody can fall in love with dance. As we look ahead to new platforms for presenting dance, we want to take a moment to look back at where dance has taken us and celebrate some of the people who have been a part of our journey.


People of da:ns is a tapestry of the movements, narratives and people who have been involved in da:ns festival. It comprises a video featuring some of the incredible artists we have worked with and their inspiring works, as well as a compilation of photos and personal stories from the broad spectrum of people—artists, collaborators, audiences and volunteers—who have supported us through the years. Through these memories, we hope to capture the diversity, energy and spirit of the festival.


Look out for the video which will be published later this year on 12 October, as well as the photos and stories that will be posted on the da:ns festival Facebook page in the weeks leading up to the final edition of the festival.
