Hosted by the Croatian Cultural Centre, Spring Forward will take place in Rijeka and Opatija (Croatia) from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 April in the framework of Rijeka 2020, European Capital of Culture. The Aerowaves’ annual festival is open for professionals involved in curating and programming dance performances.
Nevertheless, due to the Coronavirus crisis the Croatian government is taking measures to restrict the spread of Covid 19 by enforcing a 14 day quarantine / self isolation (depending on the region) on anyone coming from: Italy, China, Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia district of Heinsberg), South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore. Thus, this could also affect the Spring Forward programme and other matters of the festival.
At this stage Aerowaves and the Croatian Cultural Centre are not envisaging we will have to cancel the festival, but of course we are carefully monitoring the situation. We really hope that everything is back to normal by the end of April.
We will keep you updated on our plans!
