Festival Programme for 2017

A creative breath of fresh air from South East Europe is once again invading BOZAR. While our countries have been looking inwards, the festival remains an essential space for dialogue and new discoveries. In the company of the artists from the different cultural communities of the region you won’t fail to get caught up in a whirlwind of music, films, dance and activities. It’s time to head for the Balkans!
