Oriente Occidente is an open cultural institution which believes in the practice and culture of dialogue. It develops networks of relationships through the language of dance. Dance is always about overcoming boundaries: of language, ethnicity, gender, age, culture.

Oriente Occidente is a bridge between east and west, north and south, form and substance, ethics and aesthetics, past and future.


We want to build a freer, more welcoming and inclusive society through artistic practices that focus on the universal languages of bodies.

We want to be part of a world which considers culture a universal human right and education towards art and beauty an exercise in citizenship.

We work with determination and courage to make this happen every day.
