From April 23rd to 25th 2021, the ehrenfeldstudios host the first edition of the dance network festival Sharing Across Borders, in Cologne! The festival weekend will be filled with performances, workshops, seminars with lots of opportunities of exchange to center the theme of networking.
The evening programme is filled with performances by European artists. In the afternoons, emerging local talents showcase their projects in our pitching program SHARING IDEAS and have the opportunity to meet potential partners. Artists from more than four European countries will be gathering in Cologne over one weekend to maintain and strengthen cultural bonds across borders – especially in times like this!
Furthermore, the festival offers a 2-day workshop, a symposium, and artist talks in our “soup kitchen” to allow for exchange and networking.
Have a first look into our programme!
