Festival de Danza de Praga

Prague Dance Festival (Main Divadlo Ponec, Zizkov district, Prague) – this event is held annually from late May to late June (in Prague and other Czech cities). The International Festival of Contemporary Dance and Movement Theatre TANEC PRAHA, has successfully developed and expanded throughout the 90’s. Increasing public and media interest enabled Czech audiences to gain a better understanding of the difference between traditional ballet and progressive, experimental dance, which crosses the borders between artistic contemporary disciplines.

 

The whole festival is usually anticipated by the Czech Dance Platform, during which foreign partners will help to select Czech artists for the whole year project and also the site-specific work for different areas of Prague are agreed in details. Such an accompanying program helps to develop long-term projects of international co-production to be able to present new experimental work during the whole season especially in the new dance venue Ponec.
