From March 12-15 Buenos Aires will once again host the popular dance festival Ciudanza. In its eighth edition in Buenos Aires, Ciudanza is part of an international network of contemporary dance festivals, uniquely coordinated throughout cities across the world to make use of public spaces such as parks and outdoor venues. Combining dance with public spaces, Ciudanza is one of the most anticipated Buenos Aires festivals each year.
Unlike other dance festivals, Ciudanza and its counterparts in cities like Barcelona, Lisbon, London and Havana specifically feature different languages and cultural aspects while drawing inspiration from the natural backdrops of the city to generate a unique experience for its viewers. Open to the public and free of charge, this Buenos Aires festival aims to teach its viewers new things about the city and allow them to rediscover the city’s green spaces and architectural heritage.
Featuring multiple dance groups, the 2015 edition of Ciudanza will take place among three locations throughout Buenos Aires: La Usina del Arte (La Boca neighborhood), Plaza Mariano Boedo (the site of the headquarters for Comunal 5 in Boedo neighborhood), and Plaza Manuel Belgrano (Belgrano neighborhood). Each performance will be unique, incorporating a variety of world languages and other cultural aspects to enhance the cast’s dancing abilities. These aspects have combined to produce a very entertaining festival in past years and the 2015 edition promises to be equally rewarding for its viewers.
If you will be in Buenos Aires during March 12-15, you should consider checking out this festival! For more information about Ciudanza and other Buenos Aires festivals, visit the city government’s website.
