Mission & Vision


The "I" is also the other, the other is also the "I". (Chuang-tzu)

OrienteOoccidente is an open cultural institution that for more than 40 years has been giving life to a dialogue through dance, a language that by its definition goes beyond many borders.
We are a bridge between East and West, between North and South, between ethics and aesthetics.
We are defined by opposites. Oriente Occidente is international and local, near and far, welcoming and stimulating, accessible and challenging, balanced and controversial, rooted and gypsy, of the city and of the world.



We want to be part of a world that considers culture a universal right and beauty education an exercise of citizenship. We work constantly to make this happen every day.
