Submerge Festival




SUBMERGE celebrates choreography and artistic solidarity. The festival consists of workshops taught as precursors to performances. The workshops function as “re-creative” labs where artists guide participants into the crafting of their work. Artists share the creative processes, movement techniques, choreographic/improvisational methods and conceptual journeys that contributed to the creation of the work. Each workshop includes a formal performance, open to the public, of the piece investigated in the lab.


This year, SUBMERGE returns for Volume Six and LAKE is delighted to expand the festival program with two exciting additions. YOUTH LABS will offer workshops and performances geared towards children, teenagers and all the young at heart. And our popular all stylez dance battle will return with the LAKE BLIND DATE BATTLE V.2.


In addition, we will host weekend events such as a HEAR & NOW* Play session-meets-JAZZBETWEEN, a space for dancers and musicians to move, play and improvise together.  


The idea behind the SUBMERGE Festival — to dive into, examine and share the creative process behind a particular performance work — grew out of a need to foster more solidarity in the ways that artists exchange and experience each other’s work.
