We have put behind us an exciting festival year 2015, where the theme of the festival was GLOBAL HORIZON. Last year's program introduced us to the global dance community through personal stories from different corners of the world. We experienced how non-Western dance expands our understanding of an art form that allows dance, live music, philosophy, theatre, and visual art to co-exist. The Art of Dance knows no boundaries of language or landscape. Next full scale CODA festival will find place 18 - 28 October 2017. Please, read more here

In “the-between-year” 2016, we will focus on CODA+, our latest contribution to our senior followers. Our partners for CODA+ in 2016 include among others The Norwegian Competence Center for Arts & Health, DANS i Nord-Trøndelag and Bærum Kulturhus – Regional Center for Dance. You can read more about our exciting programme in our next newsletter!

We wish all our followers an exciting dance year!
