A new quality on the Polish dance scene
Polish Dance Network is the first formalised co-operation between institutions and organisations that support the development of contemporary dance in Poland. Each season, the Polish Dance Network Partners choose the most interesting works of Polish independent artists and institutional dance companies, which form a joint repertoire toured within the network over the next year.
The network supports mobility of selected productions, promotes artists and encouradges the implementation of good practices in the professional dance environment. It contributes signifficantly to the creation of conditions and structures supporting the circulation of contemporary dance art in Poland and works towards integrating the dance scene through the exchange of different dance aesthetics.
