DAB2022 met at Polli Talu Art Center

DAB (Dance Across Borders) is an international network of independent dance artists and organizations that promotes research and education, fostering independent collaborations between dance artists. The first event took place in New York City in 1995, followed by meetings in the Netherlands, Estonia, Sweden and France.

This year DAB returned to Polli Talu Arts Center in Pärnumaa. On September 3rd and 4th DAB invited Estonian audiences to participate in workshops and watch performances by guest choreographers from Europe and the USA.
