Roots Festival


Roots festival

Roots Festival is a contemporary dance festival which takes place every year. It is our goal to show dance in its versatility and totality. With this festival we want to reach out to the world with our work and our vision on dance, which is:

  • Creating and performing contemporary dance performances for a broad inclusive audience
  • Creating and performing dance pieces with (vulnerable) youth
  • Creating stage opportunities

The central theme of this years festival is Escapism.

  • A dance piece created and performed by the youth of Overkop in an intensive dance trajectory at Roots, under the guidance of Helena Vandecasteele, Joke De Winde, and Ine Garré

  • A live improvisation on stage where the dancers of the Collective and the youth of Overkop enter the stage together
