The Association of Contemporary Dance will over three evenings present eight dance performances from Slovak choreographers' workshops. The performances differ in mood and offer a variety of themes - from abstract impersonations of the search for meaning to a satirical picture of the 'unordinary common' things and situations which surround us all.
The aim of the Slovak presentations is to showcase the country's original works and to support the independent professionals of the field, most of whom suffer from poor exposure and scant venues to perform at. The dance performances presented this week will be a unique opportunity to enjoy the most recent developments of Slovak contemporary dance. Moreover, the audience will have the chance to experience a feeling that can sometimes only be expressed through motion.
