FLOW Festival

Flow, as the flow of water, floating, swaying, swirling. The name suggests the dynamism and innovation of the festival, reflecting movement and circulation. The idea of the festival was born in 2015 to celebrate M Studio’s 10th anniversary with the aim of creating a dance and movement theatre event that is unique in the region.

The event proposes to showcase the different and authentic current trends in contemporary dance and movement to the audience of the city of Sfântu Gheorghe and the region as well.

Over the years we have managed to present companies that represent a unique dance language and style, as well as being internationally known and recognized.

M Studio
