12 June-18 July 2003. The first edition of a month-long contemporary dance festival which will be directed by a different artist every year. This year the director is Belgian choreographer Frdric Flamand. A fervent believer in an interdisciplinary approach to dance (plastic arts, architecture and video), Flamand explores the relation of the body to new technology. In recent years he has worked with architects Diller + Scofidio, Zaha Hadid and Jean Nouvel on the relationship between the dancers body and the structure space imposes upon it.

12 July: Angelin Preljocaj Company in Near Life Experience; Gelabert/Azzopardi in Preludis. 16 July: Stephen Petronio in Broken Man, Prelude, Strange Attractors Part II, City of Twist; Robin Orlin in We must eat our suckers with the wrappers on (repeated 17 July). 17 July: John Jasperese in Giant Empty.
