Welcome to the 13th edition of FMK International Dance Festival. This year, after a two-year hiatus, we are very pleased to invite international artists from France, Portugal, Canada, Singapore, South Korea and Japan back to Laos. They are joined by local artists to share with you beautiful moments of dance.
The program is full of new performances, including propositions from our partners: the festivals NDA in South Korea and Cont.Act in Singapore. We also feature new dance films during Ciné-Danse Evening, a program initiated in 2018 and co-organized with our long-term partner, the Institut Français of Laos. Moreover, for this edition, an innovation in our program is the Artistic Talks : we gather artists from different arts forms to join the discussion, to meet and share their artistic journey and their creative process.
Finally, we have the pleasure to go back and perform at Ban Houa-Xieng with the "Community Outreach program", and in Luang-Prabang, thanks to our partnership with Luang-Prabang Film Festival.
The whole team joins me to thank all the artists, the partners and the public, for their immense support. We wish you a great FANG MAE KHONG INTERNATIONAL DANCE FESTIVAL 2022 !
