DBM (Danse Bassin Méditerranée) is an international network, existing since 1998, that aims to facilitate artistic and cultural exchanges within the Euro-Arab Mediterranean Region and between this region with the rest of the world. DBM connects various independent artists, art professionals and organisations from the Balkans, Europe, North Africa and Middle East, working with contemporary dance and the performing arts in general. DBM has supported the creation and distribution of contemporary dance productions, training and seminars, contemporary dance festivals and regional platforms and, above all, the meeting of hundreds of artists and art professionals of the region in a series of international DBM meetings.
