report of the visit
What I discovered was a new look on the project 18M8L, some new aspects of strength I didn’t realize before. This happened thanks to the look of the local professionals we met […]. This was very relevant to me, as it showed me something I didn’t expect. The co-design of the activities of this week together brought our partner in Leipzig to enhance their local relation with the dance scene in Leipzig.

We have to achieve
a way to share.
is the core of our time.
Art shows you something else.
