A new dance festival organized by DESTINO Dance Company is around the corner for dance lovers. Entitled Adey, Ethiopia’s first international dance festival from October 26-28,2017, is set to celebrate the country’s rich and diverse dance culture.
This historic event which aims to promote traditional-contemporary dance brings together national and international dance companies. Groups from Benishangul-Gumuz regions, Amhara, Ethiopiawinet; who are winners from the 2015 Ethiopian Idol Dance TV competition – Balageru Idol, the Ugandan company Batalo East and finally for the first time in Ethiopia, Les SlovaKs, a Franco-Slovak dance collective based in Brussels that fuses traditional Slovak dance with contemporary dance, all set to music by a musician on violin and mandolin.
The show will be held at the National Theater. Adey Dance Festival is part of a wider program, co-funded by the European Union, the Swiss Development Cooperation and other international and local sponsors, that aims at preserving and promoting cultural heritage in the country. Upstream of the festival, an in-depth research journey was conducted on traditional dance and the production of a film and a book as well.
Tickets are 200 birr per show and full festival package for the three days will cost 500 birr. Students can attend the festival at a discounted rate of 100 birr per show. Tickets are currently being sold at Tryst Cafe, Le Louvre Hotel-Restaurant , Steam Café and Dok Restaurant.
DESTINO Dance Company is an innovative social project trains young local dancers from underprivileged backgrounds (including some with disabilities) in traditional Ethiopian dance. They put on occasional performances (check the website for details) and have plans for a new dance festival in 2017. They also run classes in Ethiopian contemporary dance.
The Company is run by two founding members of the Adugna Community Dance and Theatre Company, Addisu Demissie and Junaid Jemal Sendi. Building on Adugna’s reputation for high quality work that uses dance to help people improve their chances in society and that encourages young people to use their energy and time in constructive and positive ways, DESTINO Dance is developing an extensive program of community outreach.
