Première Not on this Earth one comes from Israel, the other from Lebanon. Two historically separated bodies bring a dance duet on conflict and borders and the power of dance to bridge this.


Dancer and musician play with each others discipline in the hilaric duet  Panflutes & Paperworks.


Be surprised in advance by swirling dance acts of CHRONOS on the Central Station and Leidseplein. Their choreography will be performed by students of the Academy for Theatre and Dance.

In collaboration with Dutch Performing Arts, there is another visitors' programme for international guests. This year, international choreographers will also visit the festival with the support of the Carte Blanche programme of the European Dancehouse Network.




From February 7 2019, the innovative dance festival Moving Futures travels for the fifth time through various cities in the Netherlands. In an equally refreshing and versatile program, a quirky generation with starting and more advanced dance and performance artists will pass you by. They shine just as hard on the ferry, in the cinema and in the middle of the shopping street (no dancing thresholds!) And on stage. With performances, open studios, workshops, essays, bubble chat and bingo, Moving Futures will keep you on top of everything.
