Over the last year dancedigital has supported a great group of artists who are exploring the combination of dance / movement and technology in their work. We are proud to showcase the results of their work at our Festival, April 25. – 27.

Re:Rosas – the fABULEUS Rosas Remix Project
30 years ago, Belgium dance company Rosas put itself on the map with the production “Rosas danst Rosas“ which quickly became an international classic and has been staged all over the world since then.
On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of this piece, Rosas invited everyone to dance their own version of “Rosas danst Rosas“ and make a video of it.
Since the project launch in June 2013, 250 “Rosas danst Rosas” videos have been shared with the online platform. Check it out!
