The Guangdong Dance Festival is one of the brilliant features of the Guangdong culture. It is also renowned internationally. The festival not only features the forefront of international dance innovators, but also establishs young and emerging artists from China. There are performances both in theatre and public space as well as collaberations with organizations from different fields.
Over the years, it has grown into a platform of international exchange and a hub of Chinese contemporary dance development where new ideas are turned into reality. Its DanceX activities are the very first arts market for Chinese contemporary dance, and have become a study case in performing art in China. DanceX not only builds up the image of Chinese contemporary art in the world, but it also demonstrates the advanced development of the Guangdong culture.
On the other hand, its community activities strengthen the understanding between the public and the contemporary dance. The free admission community activities, including site specific performance, dance workshops, community tours, dance installations, etc. highlight the city with uniqueness.
