www.south-south.info the information website about contemporary dance in southern hemisphere countries is now on line !
Available in English, French and Spanish, www.south-south.info offers a general view of the main contexts of exchange for contemporary dance in the countries of the southern part of the planet and intends to stimulate and facilitate international exchange, cooperation and circulation of artists and ideas from South to South.
www.south-south.info can be used as both an everyday working tool and as a travel guide for all dance professionals. Its realization has been made possible thanks to the dedication and valuable cooperation of several consultants in each country.
