A dancer stares straight on, envelopped in a sculpture made out of articulating cones. Small lights cast a purple and blue glow.

Petrikor: from Petrichor (/ˈpɛtrɪkɔːr/), is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. 

A dancer is stretched out in a side plank on a black marley floor in a dance studio. Her body is angled in a diagonal, her head towards a large window, slightly blurred, and her foot extended with toes splayed, in sharp focus in the foreground.

Dance is a means for change


Petrikor Danse focuses on interdisciplinary collaborative work. Its mandate is to provide audiences with complete artistic experiences that generate a place of reflection and dialogue. Petrikor seeks to democratize art by combining different art forms and investing in socially engaged subjects.

Petrikor: from Petrichor (/ˈpɛtrɪkɔːr/) is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek πέτρα petra, meaning "stone", and ἰχώρ īchōr, the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology.
