In their artistic research Lublin Dance Theatre and Contemporary Dance Group of Lublin Technical University concentrate on two domains.

  1. Searching for its original and specific form of expression through:
    • creation of the space architecture focused on relationships and meanings of the space-and-time structures, by making use of contemporary trends and rules of space building;
    • creating of specific quality of movement, which can vividly express physicality of human body, individual expression of the dancers and three-dimensional existence of their bodies in space;
    • use of gestures, often transformed in an abstract way, that enables the choreographer to create a specific atmosphere of the performance.
  2. Creating of a dance theatre as a place of dialogue with the audience about the world around and promotion of dance as a medium of intellectual and emotional expression, having a great social and political potential.
