Barcelona contemporary dance festival returns

Barcelona’s cutting-edge event dedicated to contemporary dance, Sâlmon< Festival, returns on 22 January for its 7th edition.

The festival’s organisers have announced that this year sees Sâlmon< in a process of transition with the aim of making it even more open and collective in the future, as well as a festival of ‘living arts’ that has different Barcelona venues sharing the responsibility for its management.

The acts taking part in 2019 focus on experimentation, research and adding value to the process of choreography.

It’s also been designed as a place where different communities – artists, the general public and professionals – can come together to explore concepts of dance and creativity.

As well as a range of performances, the programme includes educational sessions, radio shows, the chance to see works in progress, conferences and visits.

Many of the artists are from the local dance scene, such as Javier Guerrero, Veronica Navas Ramirez and Paz Rojo, while international guests include Guy Sherwin from the UK who presents a series of performances and projections, and Dutch-Swedish choreographer and dancer Jefta Van Dinther.

When: 22 January-10 February

Where: Mercat de les Flors and other Barcelona venues
