The National Center for Culture & Arts (NCCA) of King Hussein Foundation is proud to host the 6th Annual Amman Contemporary Dance Festival (ACDF) which falls in line with its mission to promote cultural exchange and enhance the theater and dance movements in Jordan.
The ACDF falls within the Masahat Dance Network, a regional network comprising of Maqamat Dance Theatre in Lebanon and Sareyyet Ramallah - First Ramallah Group in Palestine; Tanween Dance Theatre in Syria and the National Center for Culture and Arts in Jordan. The importance of MASAHAT Dance Network is in providing a unique opportunity for companies to tour to all festivals in the partner countries allowing for leading choreographers to exchange experiences with local artists and reinforcing the importance of dialogue and cultural diversity.
This year’s festival, which is held from 13-25 April, 2014, we have chosen to include renowned contemporary dance companies from Norway, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland and UK, in a variety of performances for both children and adults. It is our hope that at each festival, our audiences get the chance to view leading dance companies utilizing unique techniques and to further their appreciation of the aesthetics of contemporary dance.
