SAND Festival is an investigating and exploring festival, which aims to present some of the most interesting, cutting-edge, and engaging performing arts for a young audience. Each year, the festival is programmed with the basis in a theme.
In 2017, the theme is ON THE RUN. With the refugee crisis as backdrop, our goal for SAND Festival 2017 is to bring people on the run into the light. We aim to bring forward the voices that not always are heard in the public sphere – and we want to show performing arts that makes visible those that flee from war and crises.
