Life Long Burning (LLB)

Towards a sustainable Eco-System for Contemporary Dance in Europe

 

 

After five eventful and exciting years, Life Long Burning, a project for the sustainable support of the European contemporary dance and performance scene, supported by the Culture Programme of the European Union, ended on June 30, 2018.

We are proud to announce that its successor project – Life Long Burning, Towards A Sustainable Eco-System for Contemporary Dance in Europe – subsequently enters into its footsteps and will further develop and deepen its artistic goals, thanks to a four year support by the Creative Europe Programme.
