Organised by the Municipal People?s Government of Shanghai, the event will be hosted by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Chinese People?s Republic. The CSIAF ranks among Shanghai?s major cultural events.

The Polish Dance Theatre will perform alongside such companies as the China National Opera House,  National Ballet of China, New York City Ballet, Shanghai Ballet, Akram Khan Company, Ballet Nacional de Cuba, Australian Ballet, Maria Pagés Dance Company or  Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal. 

 

The 20th China Shanghai International Arts Festival will begin on 19 October and conclude on 18 November. The Polish Dance Theatre will present The Harvest directed by Igor Gorzkowski, which will be featured as part of the Polish focus held to celebrate the centenary of Poland?s regained independence. The presentations will take place on 21-22 October at the Shanghai Theatre Academy (7:30 pm). The venture has been financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage as part of the Multiannual Programme NIEPODLEGŁA 2017-2021, within the frame of the Adam Mickiewicz Institute?s ?Asia? Programme, which strives to popularise contemporary Polish culture in Asia. The programme is implemented through a sustained presence of Polish artists at key festivals and major cultural institutions in China, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and India.
