Succesful tenth edition SPRING
Last Saturday, the tenth edition of SPRING Performing Arts Festival concluded with the exceptional dancers of Brazilian company Grupo de Rua led by choreographer Bruno Beltrão. With 20 different performances, SPRING 2022 once again paid attention to both international and Utrecht makers and the connection we have with technology today.
Grzegorz Reske, artistic director SPRING: "SPRING 2022 showed us again that live art is about more than just presenting ready-made productions. It is about meeting and exchange. There were inspiring encounters between artists, moving encounters with audience and enlightening cross-generational exchanges. SPRING proved to be a space where we could practice, discuss and redefine our social closeness by creating a community that wants to think more deeply and look beyond. SPRING was as much about celebration and joy as it was about learning and reflection. We hope to continue to provide that in the future."
