Kalamata Dance Festival Presentation on This Year’s Program, June 2

KALAMATA – The 27th Kalamata Dance Festival (KDF) is set for July 16-25. The Festival’s Artistic Director Linda Kapetanea noted, via email, that on Wednesday, June 2, a video presentation will be held to announce the KDF’s program for this year.

Kapetanea said: “Last summer, the Kalamata Dance Festival was one of the few festivals in the world that not only were not canceled but were indeed held live, offering a full and rich program, with international and Greek artists and companies, while taking all the necessary measures to ensure a safe environment for both the public and the artists.

“Implementing last year’s Festival was a laborious process, which, nevertheless, filled us with strength and optimism. Our message to the audience and artists was, and still is, that we wish to keep our relationship with art alive. Especially with the art of dance, which is so closely associated with the human body. The 27th Kalamata Dance Festival will take place this year on July 16-25, with international personalities, important Greek artists, many different types of contemporary dance, and a strong educational program for professionals.”

On Wednesday, June 2 at 12 PM [Greece time], the 27th Kalamata Dance Festival program will be presented by Artistic Director Kapetanea, with greetings from the Minister of Culture Dr. Lina Mendoni, the Deputy Minister of Culture and Sports responsible for contemporary culture Nicholas Yatromanolakis, the Governor of the Region of Peloponnese Panagiotis Nikas, and Mayor of Kalamata Thanasis Vassilopoulos, through a video of presentation of this year's program.

The video of the presentation will be available on the KDF website: https://kalamatadancefestival.gr/, Youtube channel: http://bit.ly/27KDF2021, and Facebook: @kalamatadancefestival.
