Station Serice for contemporary dance - Contemporary dance and performance
STATION is a bottom-up initiative of the contemporary dance and performing arts community in Serbia, established in 2005. It has been working towards making that community strengthened, structured, and recognized by cultural policy makers, state institutions, cultural operators, educational policy makers, Balkan and European partners and funding bodies, as well as by broader audience.
What we do:
We support development of contemporary dance scene in Serbia through education, production and promotion of the emerging artists, dancers and choreographers.
We fight and advocate for the Balkan cultural cooperation and give our work in Nomad Dance Academy as an example of successful regional collaborative platforms.
We work on improvement of conditions for independant contemporary artists through our activist, advocacy and solidarity actions, raising visibility of our work and academic collaborations in the field of cultural policy.
We promote Serbian as well as Balkan contemporary dance artists internationally through our networks and international projects such as Jardin d'Europe, apap – advanced performing arts project etc.
We place contemporary dance to Serbian cultural map through our annual festival KONDENZ – Festival of contemporary performing arts and through organisation of performances around Serbia.
We produce new work and encourage experiment, transdicsiplinary work and reserach.
