Festival Story:

New generations of choreographers express their aesthetic and social comments of the world they live in and so they leave their mark on the history of dance. The aim of the festival from the beginning was to present a broad range of diverse styles and dance profiles present in the world of dance today. The Festival offers a context to the development of new ideas and the space for the emergence of new talents, and especially a point of reflection about the art of dance within the overall Croatian culture.
