Puzzle

Puzzle is a project dedicated to the professional development of young dancers and choreographers through the creation of a platform for a systematic exchange of both knowledge and experiences in dance. By introducing them with the practices of established local and international choreographers, participants become acquainted with a wide spectre of relevant practices necessary for professional development – from dance and choreography, conceptualisation and project writing, to performing.

Puzzle enables the connection between new generations and established colleagues and allows the introduction to the way the contemporary dance scene works and therefore contributes to professionalisation, to scene empowerment and to the quantity and quality of future projects. Puzzle facilitates critical thinking about the working conditions in dance, the relations within the scene, existing bottom-up and top-down policies, as well as the conditions for engagement through collaboration and artistic projects.
