Dance platform: a short user’s manual

time: 8 November, 3.30 – 4.45 pm
venue: PS Chatka Żaka
moderated by: Grzegorz Kondrasiuk

What is a dance platform used for? Apart from serving promotional functions, can it raise artistic merit, or is it, perhaps, a project that spans even further, becoming an instrument of cultural policy that helps shape national dance scenes? If it is, indeed, such an instrument, then who finds it useful and for what purpose? How do platforms held in individual countries differ from one another, and what underlies these differences?

A discussion gathering artists, managers, producers, critics – guests of the Platform from Poland and abroad.


Where? And what for?

What is the state of affairs in Polish dance after this year’s Platform? Are we, as a community, creating survival strategies or future scenarios? Is there even any “us”, and if there is, what do we have in common? Can such concepts as “development”, “change”, “identity” be used to describe the condition of the Polish dance scene?
