The annual international DECEMBER DANCE festival arose out of a collaboration between the Concertgebouw Brugge and Cultuurcentrum Brugge. The festival enhances Bruges’s profile as a centre for contemporary dance. DECEMBER DANCE is built up around alternating curatorships and focuses. In uneven years DECEMBER DANCE invites a leading choreographer to curate the festival, present his or her own work, and invite other artists to perform. In even years DECEMBER DANCE has a geographic focus.
