The International contemporary dance festival New Baltic Dance (NBD) is taking place from April 26th to May 14th in Vilnius, Ukmergė, and Žagarė.
From 2 -5 May 2023, both the Ukrainian Dance Platform and the Lithuanian Dance Platform will be presented in the frame of the festival:
Ukrainian Dance Platform
is a meeting of choreographers who continue to work in Ukraine or have temporarily left the country; and present the latest works that were created after the beginning of the invasion. During two days, 6 shows and performances, as well as a few formal and informal meetings with European colleagues, will be held at the venues of the festival. We hope that this meeting will be the beginning of new joint projects between Ukrainian and European artists and a platform for the exchange of dance practices, thoughts and experiences between artists of different countries and different generations.
Lithuanian Dance Platform
is dedicated to discovering the young generation of LT artists who work between Lithuania and European countries. During two days, you will discover a few works in progress, a pitch program, and full-length performances.
Register here for the platforms before 27 March.
