Thinking together about dance, art, being “contemporary”. This is a new form of experience, which includes exploration in the subjects of history, aesthetics and language of contemporary dance.

Thinking together about dance, art, being “contemporary”. This is a new form of experience, which includes exploration in the subjects of history, aesthetics and language of contemporary dance.

During the performance, you can see details of the emblematic productions of the Central Europe Dance Theatre. Across these parts, we travel to the roots and origin of dance, exchanging ideas about the essence of human movements. We invite you to a mutual dialogue – both language of movements and spoken words – to discover the rhythms of our own body.

This is a surprising, intellectual, entertaining performance for those who would like to know who or what is contemporary dance today.

Progressive. Stylish. Contemporary. The Central Europe Dance Theatre (CEDT) is one of the most powerful and impressive dance companies. In the past 27 years they have made shows in 22 countries, 44 cities, they have had 112 premiers, and they have worked together with 59 choreographers.

The company believes that contemporary dance is current and our shows are relevant and reflective. Our mission is a research about the deep meanings of human movements, and the “Who are you, contemporary dance?” born from the results of this process.

The base of our work is Hungary and the Carpathian Basin, we are inspired by the various and living dance traditions of the region, but we are sensitive to the international trends and problems of the present. We are open to challenges.
