After editions dedicated to personalities and various fields of art, such as music, visual arts and literature, the festival gets back to its roots, posing questions about the meaning of the word MEETING – featured in the name of the Festival since its very beginning.

Meeting is not only “communication of personalities”, mutual inspiration and learning, collaboration on a new artistic quality. To meet – might mean to continue master’s way with thorough respect, but also to question this way. Meeting might be a dialogue or a fierce dispute. A desire to communicate or an irresistible need to emphasize one’s individuality. Yet, it is always an intensive process, leading to original and interesting artistic developments.

The programme includes performances of artists from Germany, Portugal, Israel, France, Switzerland and the USA as well as special evening dedicated to Polish artists only (11 November). The programme also features film presentations, meetings with artists, lectures, a conference on dance after 1989, Mobile Academy of Dance Criticism, workshops and master classes.
