Welcome to the XIII Annual International Contemporary Dance Conference and Performance Festival organised by Silesian Dance Theatre. The Festival runs from 2-15 July and CriticalDance is again working with the Festival Newspaper and the Dance Writing Workshop to report on the events as they happen.

- 40+ performances
- 25+ dance workshops daily
- children's dance conference
- international arts managers' seminar
- dance photo workshops
- international seminar of dance historians and critics with 45, 90-minute sessions
- community outreach programs

"Wrzaskowisko" performed by Silesian Dance Theatre, Choreography: Jacek Łumiński
Here's what the organisers have to say about the Festival:
The Silesian Dance Theatre organizes the Annual International Contemporary Dance Conference and Performance Festival to strengthen the contemporary dance community in Poland stressing the intrinsic democratic values of dance. The Programs and performances of the conference/festival are designed with the intention of encouraging Polish dancers to build their own forms of expression by respecting and culling movement from personal influences: national traditions, mentality, geopolitical setting, historical and contemporary issues, etc.
The conference/festival structure is meant to give and strengthen personal qualities creating possibilities for the development of independent choreographers and companies; to build communication between members of local and international communities through the arts; to highlight the values of the arts which are advantageous for the future development of the economy and democracy in the country.
The conference/festival, gathering the national community and inviting international colleagues to come and interact to share ideas, cultures and experiences, has become the national meeting place for dance, which represents the culmination of the past seasons' educational and creative efforts as well as a glimpse at the many possibilities for the future.
