Dance, silence, restoration, dismantling, gathering, health, revelry, image-making, ritual and the poetic are all words that swirled in our conversations as we put together this second edition of IFL in 2022. It ran from 03 – 16 December 2022.

Standing for International Festival of Learning, IFL is a biennial festival that puts the accent on expanded approaches to learning, collaboration, performance and international exchange, with 30+ artists bringing a fortnight of labs, talks and performances.
