The series of meetings will be hosted by Anna Królica/Uniwersytet Jagielloński/nowytaniec.com.

Lately, the definition "dance theatre"  has been rooted to Polish terminology - is more recognizable then than Tanztheater and it sounds better then the spectacles of modern dance; more or less all of us understand what kind of art it is. But can we put Tanztheater under one definition, to one artist? This phenomena and this terminology are growing very fast loosing its expressiveness. Tanztheater is becoming the word-key, the word - master key. If we use it in a proper context it explains everything and at the same time it makes discussion more difficult because of the etiquette imposing. The series of three lectures will be a trial to tackle with the mystery of Tanztheater and dance theatre definitions and also it will be a journey to the source of their history. Lectures are arranged in thematic blocks illustrated by unique audio - visual materials.

At the present she is a PhD student in Drama Department at Jagielloński University, the director of PERFORMA Foundation, co-founder and an editor of http://www.nowytaniec.pl/ website.
