X Dance Festival (XDF) is delighted to be continuing to cooperate with Annantalo for the Children’s part of the festival program in 2023 on Tuesday 30th May from 10am – 3pm. Two performances invite and guide children and families to a multisensory engagement with their experience. Visual dance and mime theatre company Auraco presents Tuntu which reveals a journey beyond seeing and Kaaos Company shares a virtual online immersion with Mirage incorporating image, text, audio description and dance. The performances are suitable for the visually impaired community. Children and families can also participate in the Auraco workshop and join the presentation by Värisevät Varpaat – art education group at their work in the Fragile and Colourful student exhibition in Annantalo. The festival day ends with La Disco Carnival starting from the indoor and continuing to the outdoor stage.

ABOUT X DANCE FESTIVAL

Welcome to XDF 2023. The theme of MULTIPLICITY aims to invite curiosity of what happens when we give equal value, measure and agency to all bodies. This theme creates space for movement expression and exchange within multidimensional fields of information. In turn this ultimately affects how we perceive ourselves and each other. XDF’s unique perspective invites the dance field to grow beyond ableism in who can dance and what dance can be.

X Dance Festival is a co-operation between DanceAbility Finland ry and Kaaos Company who are dedicated to active engagement and responsiveness to conversations about inclusion and accessibility in dance through educational and artistic interventions. XDF 2023 offers performances, dance films, workshops, a panel discussion and conversations.
