TANEC PRAHA: Prague Dance Festival
The International Festival of Contemporary Dance and Movement Theatre TANEC PRAHA has successfully developed and expanded throughout the 90s. 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 dramaturgy of the Festival is based on the high quality of artists (technically as well as artistically), combining big names of dance world with not so well known but ever surprising innovative artists from all over the world.
The whole festival is usually preceded 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.
