Dance Base Festival 16 Trailer from Dance Base.

The Dance Base Festival 16 programme presents the very best of home-grown and international dance.

24 shows from 13 countries – including Palestine, Taiwan, South Africa, Denmark and Ireland – featuring styles as varied as hip hop, new ballet, Palestinian contemporary dance inspired by Dabke folk traditions, physical theatre, South African gumboot and pantsula, traditional Irish dance mashed up with tango, classical Indian Kathak direct from Delhi, and many styles of fresh contemporary dance.

They will join top Scottish talent, including former Scottish ballet principal Eve Mutso, Barrowland Ballet with a children's show, Dance Ihayami, and Sita Pieraccini – at the Festival’s foremost award winning (Spirit of the Fringe) hub for dance.

The shows represent a full spectrum of what dance can say, from profound political insight to the pure joy of movement.
