On March 20 and 21, ONASSIS STEGI will be presenting the first entirely digital edition of its New Choreographers Festival.

Eleven original choreographic works – liberated from notions of “pop” versus “high art”, and with a particular soft spot for humor, the absurd, and the unexpected – will all be premiering on YouTube, Instagram, and online. For two days we will feel the pulse of young artists – in motion, with emotion, and back in motion once more. The Onassis NEW CHOREOGRAPHERS FESTIVAL 8 is stepping off the stage to connect with audiences in the only place we can currently be “together”: online, via the Foundation’s YouTube Channel.

This year’s festival consists of eleven new arts projects, all of which sprang from an open call inviting artists to create original works using digital means. Taking “we’re here, dancing away” as their rallying cry, a new generation of artists are presenting works created over the last two months that use movement to record the present moment and our current situation, giving us their takes on everything we’re thinking, feeling, and going through. 


SATURDAY 20 MARCH | 20:00-22:00 (UTC +2)

SUNDAY 21 MARCH | 20:00-22:00 (UTC +2)
