DARE-DARE presents a series of long and short performances to take place the urban environment as a means to create a dialogue with the general public.  The chosen artists use performance to uniquely explore relationship of the body and space. This multidisciplinary program aims to present a large specter of performance practices thus making the dialogue possible between the various perspectives on performance, whether they be playful or political.
