5. Free cloakroom and lockers for bags at Paradiso

At Paradiso, it is required to use the cloakroom or lockers for your bag(s). Both are free of charge for your convenience – if we keep the bags out of the way, there is more space to dance!

Due to limited storage space, we are unable to accept items larger than hand luggage (maximum 55 x 35 x 25 cm).

6. Visit the ongoing Dance of the City Warriors installation

From 14 until 19 August, Compagnie par Terre’s Anne Nguyen invites you to take part in her interactive installation Dance of the City Warriors. During Summer Dance Forever, Dance of the city warriors will consist of four installations that let the audience experience tuts, flow, freestyle and jam. Making use of tools such as live motion capture, animation and virtual reality, we are able to experience the dance for ourselves. For example, by responding to video images, sounds and music, manipulating our own images and improvising with our own moves.

➤ Tuesday 14 August open from 15:00 until 23:00
➤ Wednesday 15 August until Sunday 19 August open from 12:00 until 20:00

The installation can be visited free of charge, find out more about the installation here.
