Between the Seas aims at promoting the representation and understanding of Mediterranean culture and identity in North America.
Our mission is to:
- promote contemporary Mediterranean performing artists by presenting, producing and commissioning new work.
- familiarize North American audiences, with the latest developments in the performing arts from the participating Mediterranean countries.
- create a common platform for Mediterranean and US-based performing artists to share their work, exchange experiences, practices and ideas
- create a bridge between the Mediterranean and the US for an ongoing exchange of artists and works and encourage new partnerships between institutions and individuals on both sides of the Atlantic.
The Festival lasts for one week and includes performances in the fields of dance, music and theater. Artists are selected following an open call for submissions alongside with a smaller group of invited performances.
