Choreographic Territories ? Eastern Partnership is a program presenting contemporary dance and choreographies by some of the best Polish artists, educators and theorists of dance affiliated with the Polish Dance Platform (PDP) 2014. It includes dance presentations, workshops, meetings and debates held in the capital of four Eastern Partnership (EP) member states: Minsk (Belarus), Kiev (Ukraine), Tbilisi (Georgia) and Yerevan (Armenia).The project, realised in cooperation with experienced local cultural institutions, is a continuation of collaboration initiated at PDP 2014 in Lublin. It aims at building a platform for exchange of experiences and dialogue between the dance scenes in Poland and in selected EP countries. The program?s mission is to reclaim Central and Eastern European contemporary dance and to reintroduce it into the historic discourse and contemporary art environment. We believe that building a common dance scene across borders should not be restricted to following the well-worn trail of international trends; it should also empower local histories and give support to the countries struggling with political and financial issues.

 

Meetings with artists, symposiums, discussions

Meetings with artists, discussions between artists, and presentations of artistic achievements and knowledge in the political and historical context ? all of these will provide a wider perspective and new insights into the dance shows. A series of discussions and symposiums dedicated to the local context of contemporary dance, involving dance researchers, journalists and theoreticians, will seek answers to questions regarding the process of building cultural identity through dance, the attitudes toward national and folk dance traditions, the common heritage and the different paths of development of contemporary dance scenes in Central and Eastern Europe. The project will also present the vast experience of Polish institutions and programs supporting dance, like the Institute of Music and Dance, the Centre for Culture in Lublin, the Art Stations Foundation or the East European Performing Arts Platform, with focus on the processes of creating new organization models and a system of support for artists and dance event organizers.

 

The fourth stage of the project will take place on 4-5 October in Yerevan (Armenia) as part of the International Performing Arts Festival ?High Fest?.
