Today the FREE DANCE International Festival is the only festival in Ukraine gathering on its festival venues professional theatres of contemporary conceptual dance from many countries worldwide.

For more than fifty years by now Contemporary Dance has been the mainstream of the global artistic process gathering multi thousand audience the world over. In Ukraine, though, it’s just gaining its forces as an ANTIPODE  to mass pop-culture.

The aim of FREE DANCE Festival is NOT a competition and rewards, NOT the exhibition of achievements of the national dance ‘industry’, not “the rewards distribution”. It is rather a forum of brothers in mind, it’s polemics, a creative laboratory, a collision of various viewpoints, endless questions to one own self, a duration test of statements and ideas.

Companies invited to participate in the Fifth International Frestival FREE DANCE:

  • FRANCEECART company (within the framework of the cultural project “French Spring 2006”)
  • CZECH REPUBLIC - Ballet Prague Junior.
  • GREAT BRITAINCANdoCо Dance Company
  • USA  -  Nicholas Leichter Dance Company
  • MOLDOVAVOICE Duo – Alexandra Soshnikova, Sergei Golovnya.
  • SWEDENVirpi Pahkinen Solo Performance
  • UKRAINE – Centre of Contemporary Dance and Performance DRUGIE TANTSI / OTHER DANCES. 

International Festival FREE DANCE is a unique (for the cultural space of Ukraine) non governmental, non profitable experimental art project in the field of contemporary art, it’s budget being formed as a result of finance support provided by international cultural programmes and institutions, sponsor payments of legal entities, as well as volunteer charity donations of individuals.

Traditionally, the events of FREE DANCE’2006 festival will take place on the best Dnipropetrovsk theatrical stages and will present not only shows, but also various information and educational projects (workshops) and discussions.

 Last year the Festival events welcomed in Dnipropetrovsk more than 8000 spectators. There is every chance to believe  that in 2006 the Festival will evoke an even greater interest among the audience.
