The Barcelona New Year Dance Festival is back once again, ready to farewell this 2023 and welcome the new year!

In this 7th Edition, that will be held from December 28 to 31, we will be fortunate to have two outstanding professionals who have been investigating movement and sharing their practice all over the world: Linda Bufali (Contact Improvisation) and Leonardo Lambruschini (performance, improvisation, instant composition and Contact Improvisation).

As in previous editions, every afternoon at the end of the workshops, the room will become a jam space open to both Festival participants and the rest of the community of practitioners from Barcelona and its surroundings. In total there will be 3 days of Workshops and Jams followed by the New Year’s Eve Dinner and a party to live the last hours of this year to the fullest and turn over a new leaf in 2024. Simultaneous translation English/Spanish will be provided for both workshops.

Due to the dimensions of the space, for this edition there are a total of 30 SPOTS AVAILABLE. If you feel the calling to be part of this, make sure you reserve your spot using the form placed at the bottom of this page!
