Building on the success of an impressive inaugural year, Experimental Dance Week Aotearoa (EDWA) 2020 returns, with a refreshed local-focused format running from December 1-5 at the Herald Theatre, Auckland Live. Award-winning choreographer Alexa Wilson again curates the programme, returning home last year after a decade based in Berlin to create the sell-out festival. Committed to providing support for performing artists and platforming their work during a truly challenging time, this will be Aotearoa's first live dance festival held since March.

Multi-show and workshop passes are available.
