The Czech Dance Platform, which presents the most interesting performances produced on the Czech dance scene every year, is popular not only with the public, but primarily with domestic and international professionals. The Platform is a great opportunity for networking, as it encourages close international and national contacts and subsequent collaboration.

Each year, the Programming Council made up of independent dance professionals (critics, curators, producers, artists and others) selects around 10 of the most interesting performances from the past year.

The Platform is rooted in its rich accompanying program, which includes Meet the Artists, site-specific projects, artist trips, discussions, presentations and much more.

This year's 26th edition is very specific and reflects the various directions that Czech dance and movement production has taken in the past year. It is also a follow-up to last year's change in approach to awards, which are always granted by an international jury at the end of the event. The 26th Czech Dance Platform will be framed by works that received the two main awards last year: PLI by Viktor Černický and SAME SAME by Karine Ponties, performed by Tereza Ondrová and Petra Tejnorová.

As part of the main program, EDN member Tanec Praha will present seven recommended works at six different venues in Prague, including a rich accompanying program!

Important: Czech Dance Platform 2020 was moved from Spring to Autumn (24-27 November) due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
