This summer saw the final performances of Badke with the original cast. In July it was on in Kinshasa during the Connexion Kin festival, and in Manchester and London. In early August rehearsals with a new Palestinian cast started in Beit Jala and Birzeit, thereby making Badke part of the Palestinian repertoire. The first dates for this Badke v.2.0 are at the Palestinian Circus in Birzeit on 25 August, Orthodox Club in Beit Jala on 27 August and the Qattan Foundation in Ramallah on 29 August. Badke will be on tour again next season, with 70% original and 30% new dancers.
