Join AXIS for an unforgettable livestreamed performance at the Opening Ceremony of the 2023 Invictus Games, held for an audience of 20 – 30,000 people at the Merker Spiel-Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany!

The ceremony will also feature an address by Prince Harry and headlining performance from Seattle-born Hip-Hop artist Macklemore.

“As the first integrated dance company to perform at Invictus, AXIS is proud to celebrate the athleticism of dance and the diversity of the disability experience in this international exchange of healing, resilience and growth,” shares AXIS Artistic Director Nadia Adame
