EXPLORE DANCE FESTIVAL #3

With every eXplore dance edition we’ve tried to offer a diversity of performances, aware of the fact that contemporary dance still puzzles many of us, an “X” which we try to eXplore, once we’re in the performance hall. In 2008, we catch the public’s eye and we instigate the public to be part of the new tendencies in contemporary dance, which reflects, analyses, and eXposes (itself) more than any other form of art. You won’t see safe performances, your mind won’t be in other place but in the performance hall… We say YES to “redefined virtuosity” (Mette Ingvartsen) and NO to “saving world” art. 6 days of innovative shows and performances where new movement forms are eXperienced! 6 days of eXplore dance SHARING, where we’ll debate, we’ll ask and openly discuss about what and why we like / don’t like. Be open to eXplore with us!

The festival eXplore dance, at its third edition, proposes to present over five days, between 14 – 19 October 2008, on the most important scenes from Bucharest, professional choreographers from Romania and abroad. In 2008 the objective of the festival is presenting diverse shows as artistic approach, proposing new concepts, original creations of experienced artists. The 2008 festival concept is “Sharing”- the aim is to present portraits of choreographers, the artists being invited to present to the public not only their own shows but also their personal methods of work through conferences, workshops, thus sharing their experience and ideas with others.
