About the Festival
Founded 25 years ago, “Dance Salad” is a curated experience that can be compared to a museum exhibition. The festival places modern and contemporary dance performances by companies all over the world side by side in the same program, just as an exhibition displays works of art together based on a common theme. In both cases, the dialogue sparked by the viewing encounter heightens the audience’s appreciation and enjoyment of each artist’s creative vision.
