Work in progress

This night, three artists present projects in the making, where the artists also are performing. This is an opportunity to get to know these artists and how they work through engaging in their artistic process, and the discussion around it. Rethink Dance believes that work in progress has its own value as an artistic expression. This night is also an opportunity for further development and distribution of the projects.
