Dance Day
A Day Full of Dancing

Once again, Peiraios 260 will be occupied by the forces of dancing! Following last year’s extremely successful endeavour, the Day Full of Dancing project continues this year. Alternative forms of presentation, collective activities, dance experiences and artistic experiments jointly shape a meeting point, a hub where artists and audiences can exchange and share things.
