Ennen ohjelmiston esiinmarssia teille esittäytyvät tämän kesän festivaalin tekijät. Ilman muuta ensimmäisenä vuorossa on taiteellinen johtaja Alpo Aaltokoski.

"Toimin jo kolmatta kertaa festivaalin taiteellisena johtajana. Silti joka vuosi vatsanpohjassa kihelmöi samalla tavalla festivaalin lähestyessä. Tunne on vähän samanlainen kuin lapsella, joka odottaa jouluaattoa ja joulupukkia. Festivaalin rakentamiseen osallistuu kymmeniä ammattilaisia ja esityksissä ikään kuin huipentuu kaikkien työ.

Täydenkuun Tansseja tehdään yleisölle. Me kaikki työntekijät olemme yleisön ja esiintyvien vieraiden palveluksessa. Haluamme antaa kaikkemme, jotta esitykset toteutuvat parhaalla mahdollisella tavalla ja yleisö voi nauttia taiteellisesta annista.

Itse virittäydyn festivaaliviikkoon luonnossa liikkuen: lenkkeilen, marjasta, sienestän ja kalastan. Rauhoittavassa luonnonhelmassa ajatukset kiinnittyvät pienimpäänkin yksityiskohtaan. Odotan tulevalta viikolta lukuisia kohtaamisia ja antoisia keskusteluja yleisön ja esiintyjien kanssa."
