The Solo Dance Contest remains a regular feature of the Gdańsk Dance Festival programme, and is increasingly appreciated by the European dance community. The audience will be one of the four members of its jury. This international project gains more and more significance in the European dance community. This year, the competition attracted 60 entries from 30 dancers, including seven Poles (and even one local female dancer). The jury includes: Gun Lund (Sweden), a choreographer and dancer, one of the pioneers of Swedish contemporary dance; Hanna Raszewska (Poland), a critic and Dance Theory lecturer; and Dam Van Huynh, a choreographer and dancer, the director of Van Huynh Company.
Preselection presentations will be held on 8?11 June at 6 pm at the Żak Club, to be followed by the finale shows on Sunday 12 June at 6 pm. The evening will end with the announcement of the jury?s decision at 9 pm.
