Unlimited Access Dance Festival

Unlimited Access is an international dance festival for people both with and without disabilities, that will take place from February 26th until March 1st. It will be hosted in the Onassis Cultural Center in Athens, where companies from Greece and abroad will present their work. Also, Candoco dance company will give two workshops, for teens and for adults.

The aim of the festival is to create and promote dance performances for people with disabilities and to rethink the approach taken to disabled people in the cultural sphere. Over the last two years OCC has organized a series of contemporary dance workshops attended by people with and without disabilities, professional and amateurs. Through movement experimentation they created works that will be presented at the Unlimited Access Dance Festival. Every piece is different but all share a common message: dance is for everyone and on stage, we are all the same!
