Lebanon International Contemporary Dance Festival


The Lebanese National Theater will host our 2nd contemporary dance festival comprised of international and national dance artists located in the historic, Mediterranean seaside city of Tyre, South Lebanon.

Where: Lebanese National Theater in Tyre, Lebanon

When: July 11-14

Deadline for applications: March 31, 2020

We (the Tiro Association) have renovated the historic Cinema Rivoli to be a place for year-round festivals ranging from music to theater, dance to storytelling. In inviting artists to be a part of our contemporary dance festival, we are interested in the vast interpretations of what contemporary dance means from different places and cultures.

You are invited to stay for the duration of the festival as our family. We welcome you to our home.
