32. Open Dance Scene

The Open Dance Scene is a festival of contemporary dance art, where we seek intersections between younger and already established artists, between their conceptually and expressively diverse performances that convince, inspire and culturally enrich the audience. It is a dance platform for networking dance creativity, originality, boldness, and successful international integration. This year, the main focus is on young dance talents, on the young generation of dance makers who, despite their youth, impress with their creative and performative maturity.

“Dance is the Hidden Language of the Soul.” Martha Graham.

Even if we speak the same language, each individual translates each message into their internal language, consisting of their experiences, perceptions, interests, feelings, and cognitive processes. Thus, the translation is at best only an echo of the essence.

" We are islands shouting lies to each other across seas of misunderstanding." Rudyard Kipling
