Performances and Films

Rise 2021 is finally here. We had to take a break in 2020 (you can probably guess why) but we’re so excited to bring live performances back to Findhorn this summer.

As always, we’re on a mission to promote and produce bold and imaginative events that offer people from across the globe to just down the road new opportunities to experience dance. With a strong track record and international profile, we are dedicated to bringing excellent, often challenging work, to rural northeast Scotland, drawing artists and choreographers from across the globe. Recent projects have included Rise 2019 festival of contemporary dance and performance, Movers and Makers screendance salon and cinema, Brand New – a six day New Year dance gathering, and our annual Festive Showcase featuring performances by Dance North Youth, the Sing, Exercise and Tea groups, and more.
