Dance Dialogue: Focus on Konrad Kurowski

22 Sep

International Dance Theatre Festival has been organized by Lublin Dance Theatre since 1997 and is one of the longest running and biggest contemporary dance festivals in Poland and Eastern Europe.

The Festival is built and reformed in relation to the ever-changing needs of both dance enthusiasts and the artistic community on every level: local, national and international.

The programming and organizational foundation of the Festival reflects the range and diversity of the dance phenomenon, both Polish and worldwide, their differences and common features, as well as possibilities for dialogue between sometimes radically different elements. As such, there is space for understanding the evolution from traditional and classical dance to its more contemporary forms, to present both young artists and the dance icons on which these choreographers have been brought up, to showcase both intimate solo works and large scale performances, to describe the way of dancing in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as grasping the ideologies and concepts of dancing in the West.

Lublin Dance Theatre is a partner in the European dance network Aerowaves – dance across Europe. In 2013, with support from the Institute of Music and Dance, LDT acted as an organizer of the meeting of the Aerowaves experts committee and since then regularly presents chosen performances from the priority list of “top twenty” artists.

From 2016-2018, International Dance Theatre Festival in Lublin is focusing part of its programming to showcase particular national dance scenes from all over the world. It started by highlighting Israel, this year the focus will be Scandinavia, and in 2018 artists presented in Lublin will be invited from the USA.

Dance workshops, movie screenings, photo exhibitions, book publications, and panel discussions with audience participation are organized within the framework of the Festival. All these elements are creating a vast socio-cultural contest for the presented performances and artistic events taking place during the Festival.
