12 JULY 2017 / The SNF Lead Donor of the 7th International Contemporary Dance Festival - Dance Days Chania

The now established International Contemporary Dance Festival’ Dance Days Chania returns for the seventh consecutive year, from July 17th to July 28th, to transform, for yet another year, the city of Chania into a big stage where contemporary Greek and international dance scenes meet.

Over twelve days, through its multifaceted program featuring contemporary dance performances, workshops, lectures and talks on the theme of motion and various other parallel artistic activities that take place across Chania, Dance Days Chania aspires to spread the message that dance is a matter which concerns us all – advanced practitioners, students, amateurs and dance enthusiasts of all ages.

Organized each year by the Association of Expressive Dance "Syn-Kinisi", Dance Days Chania has received the “EFFE Label 2017-2018” as Remarkable Festival.

The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) is supporting for the first time the festival, as Lead Donor, encompassing the procurement of specialized technical and cinematographic equipment that ensure a high-quality and interactive dance spectacle, through the use of digital technology.
