Festival Interceltique de Lorient gathers 4,500 artists from all parts of the Celtic world in events of every kind: traditional, classical, folk, jazz, rock and electronic music, dance, art, literature, film and lectures. During 10 days in August around 250 shows are seen by large audiences (750,000 visitors in 2014). The festival contributes to the development of Breton culture and spreads links to the Celtic nations of Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Ireland, Galicia and Asturias.
Gender Bender is a multidisciplinary international festival introducing the Italian public to new imagery related to gender identity, sexual orientation and body representation stemming from contemporary culture. Held annually in Bologna since 2003, it is a genuine model of how differences can contribute to the construction of a richer and more open society. The festival offers a series of events ranging from film showings, to theatre and dance performances, art exhibitions, concerts and talks.
Dance Days Chania is an international contemporary dance festival. Volunteers work in order to make it happen all year around. Our action in promoting the contemporary dance in the city of Chania started in 1990-1996 with the organizing of the "International Contemporary dance festival" by E. Kaloutsi and G. Markadonakis as art directors. It continued with the realization of "Mediterrenean Platform of Contemporary dance 2004". In 2011 we attempted a new beginning with more passion and energy in order to keep up with this vision.
