The 5th Edition of Point to Point, the Asia-Europe Forum explored the relationships between tradition and contemporary in urban and rural contexts, as well as the interaction between dance and music. Twelve choreographers-dancers and six-composer-improvisers from Asia and Europe participated in this challenging twelve-day project which was held in Beijing and Guizhou, China. The project aimed to provide and avenue for new inspirations and to instigate questions. The film Amazing Grace by Dutch film documenters attempted to capture the impression and density of moments through observation.
