Support MDI’s LEAP 2017 Kickstarter campaign

Leap is MDI’s festival of world class dance that we have been programming and creating since 1992. We have developed a bold and ambitious plan to programme Leap 2017 at a new temporary ‘pop-up’ venue in the heart of Liverpool’s creative docklands.

LEAP is an international dance festival for Liverpool in the heart of the City; bringing together the community, and celebrating excellence in dance by presenting new work by companies based locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. A biennial event since 2013, Leap will return to an annual format post-2017.

We focus on diversity in our art-form, and encourage participation by offering a programme of high quality performances, workshops and talks from local and visiting artists. This new project, for which we are seeking funding, will transform a warehouse into a vibrant family-friendly temporary venue that will form a hub for artists and audiences alike for the two-week-long festival.
