The Festival of Instant Choreography publishes its budget after each festival. This small gesture is a manifestation of the values that the festival wants to promote: transparency and openness. These in turn further equality. By promoting transparency the possibilities to act unethically towards each other diminish. This gesture is important and political to me both on a personal level as well as on a larger societal scale.
