Celebrating its fifth year, MashUp’s annual International Women’s Day Festival.

Participating in this global dialogue, while facilitating local connections, MashUp is excited to announce this year’s Festival line up including free dance classes, master classes, panels, and a choreographers’ showcase of live performance and dance films.

Each year the global campaign creates a theme to forge a gender equal world by redesigning and questioning the status quo. This year’s theme reigns true and as relevant as ever: Choose To Challenge.
