THE SWALLOWSFEET COLLECTIVE PRESENT
OOPS FESTIVAL 2019
20-24th March 2019
OOPS is a movement to be different, to stand up and make bold choices. The festival brings together exceptional contemporary performance and visual artists from all over the world, lifting the voice of the artist to the forefront in these unsettled times.
“more than a festival… an event of human proportions in which dance, music and silence express contrasting aspects of the human condition.” (Nicholas Minns, writing about dance)
The Festival is a place to talk, watch, taste, exchange, create, listen and move; for artists and audiences to build a sense of community and collectively reflect on what moves us now and what will move us in and towards the future.
