Kondenz is a festival of contemporary dance and performance that has practiced collaborative curation and alternative production models for 15 years. It is also the site for Balkan collaborations through the Nomad Dance Academy network and its (Non)Aligned Movements project. Kondenz supports European dance encounters shaped by networks such as apap - Feminist Futures and Dance On, Pass On, Dream On.
The Kondenz festival will again be a time and space for exchange, togetherness and learning through performances by international, Balkan and Serbian artists, theorists, dance scholars and various encounters with the audience. This year the program focuses on radical vulnerability as a condition that we recognize and that shapes our personal lives, our collective being and our work in art; organizers want to acknowledge and value the vulnerability of the world as it is now, with its natural and human layers.
The program presents works by Kate McIntosh, Thiago Granato, Jule Flierl, Irena Tomažin, Dance On Ensemble, Igor Koruga, Ivana Kalc, Stefan Veselinovic, Ana Jelušić, Marko Pejović, as well as lectures and discussions with Rok Vevar, Thomas DeFrantz, Nina Gojić, etc. Kondenz festival will host the group Critical Practice (Made in Yugoslavia), which is composed of emerging European critics and writers of contemporary dance.
More information will soon be available on Station's website.
