All of the artists involved in the festival will join in an informal round-table discussion about the different ways that they approach their work and how they both honour the tradition they are rooted in and find ways to extend and challenge it and themselves. There will be a chance for audience members to ask questions and join the exchange of ideas, and we'd love to hear from dancers, musicians and artists working in other mediums for whom this theme is relevant.
The discussion will be facilitated by Steve Batts, artistic director of festival producers Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company.
