Dance Obscura is the stage where we embody and capture the many different shades and colours of dark subcultures. We invite you to this year’s dance programme filled with great dance acts. This year we have invited Dud Muurmand from Copenhagen, one of the finest tribal dancers from the nordic countries, to join us. We will also reunite with Entropy, who will also hold lectures/workshops in dance during the festival. This, and a lot more in this year’s Dance Obscura.

Tickets are out for 2016!


Finally, tickets are out for 2016! We hereby release a limited amount of 2 day-passes for the festival, available for pre-orders to the price of 300 SEK.

We still have not released any bookings. This does not mean there are no bookings. It simply means, we are sneaky and have not yet released them! So: buy a pig in a poke and order your tickets now and you will save quite a lot compared to the one-day tickets available later. One might call this crowd-funding in a way too.

So, are you willing to take a chance on us? Then surf right onto the TICKETS page and buy one or more while they’re available!

See you in October at Uma Obscura.

Dates are set!
