Visegrad Performing Arts
A powerful artistic statement, an original reflection on the world around us and an unprecedented variety of artistic approaches. This is how one could characterise the regular program section of the Flora Theatre Festival entitled Visegrad Performing Arts, which has provided a spectacular collage of trends in the field of contemporary performing arts in Central Europe for 6 years already. The meaning and mission of the alliance of the Visegrad Four countries has come back like a boomerang.
Vigorous and urgent. Freedom and authenticity of artistic expression have become a burning topic in Hungary, Poland, Slovakia as well as in the Czech Republic. The chance to directly confront one's work with the audience becomes a genuine gift in the current politico-cultural context. We are beginning a new phase within the Visegrad Performing Arts section in 2018. We would like to present unique artistic works that stand out from the usual production in the individual countries and with their character go beyond the borders, of genre as well as state. A careful choice of good quality festival productions as well as partial support in the form of residencies brings about both financial and dramaturgical difficulties. We have therefore decided to organize this section as a biennial event and therefore, once every two years, invite the best physical and dance theatre productions from the V4 countries to Olomouc.
This year the chosen performing art productions are not connected in terms of philosophy, age or style. Each of them is different, unique and in a singular way bears its existing cultural experience. You can enjoy various movements within dance, theatre and new circus, multi-media and sound landscapes and last but not least rare meetings with charismatic performers. The next opportunity will be in two years!
