KAAP Creative Compass

We eagerly anticipate the fifth edition of Dansand!, KAAP’s outdoor festival for contemporary dance. At the last moment, just before the arrival of the sun worshippers and parasols, dancers and artists hit the beach of Ostend. The vast expanse of sand becomes a laboratory for nascent projects and a stage for surprising performances. Young dance talent comes calling. As with Dansand! 2014, we also discover the Green Ribbon. The artists engaged in the fascinating ‘Gardens of Stene’ invite you into the polder landscape. From dancers who build sandcastles to an organic farmer who offers a locally-grown picnic. Discover the programme here.

The festival Dansand! is organized by the arts center KAAP. The first edition of Dansand! took place in 2008, the concept was developed by Katleen Van Langendonck.
