Europe’s biggest festival of contemporary dance

“Spring Forward, Fall Back” is an adage many of us will have used last weekend to remember which way to change the clocks. It’s also the inspiration for the name of a brand new contemporary dance festival which took place in Slovenia’s capital city, Ljubljana, from Friday to Sunday.

Aerowaves Spring Forward – Dance For Changing Times treated locals to a veritable extravaganza of contemporary dance. 23 companies from 13 countries performed works at the biggest ever festival for new European dance.

Inviting promoters and programmers from all over the world, the festival is a platform to showcase the works of young choreographers, as well as offering local audiences a unique overview of what’s new in contemporary dance.
