This dance festival is one of the prestigious ones in the Baltic Sea region and aims at companies performing contemporary dance and coming from countries all over the world.
"New Baltic Dance" wants to connect already established companies presenting well known productions with so far rather unacquainted companies or choreographers performing their experimental works.
The festival’s intention is to show the latest productions which means they should be less than a year old or they are actually a matter of debut performance.
