RISE 2024 will be taking place in Findhorn on the weekend of Friday 24 –
Sunday 26 May!

Dance North Scotland’s annual festival of contemporary dance and performance
brings you a programme imbued with care, connection, and community, with a
recognition that all of us experience these themes differently.

This year’s festival is structured and priced for you to be able to try a bit of everything –
follow your intuition and find the things you like. We have fun, enjoyable family and
outdoor shows, thought-provoking gallery-based performances, and bold, vital dance

As ever, it’s a programme rich with celebration and joy, and there will be plenty of
opportunities for us to dance together, and as we dance, we invite you to connect with
your body and notice what it experiences.

How can we become more connected? How do we better show our care for each
other? What does it take to stoke those fires and keep them burning, to forge
something new?

Dance with us, watch with us, join in.
Fold and shape and make something.

Enjoy all that it is to be human, inspired by art and by the people around you. We have a beautiful programme of performances and participatory events for you to
engage with and enjoy.
