The 2024 “No distance” educational programme is part of the project „Life Long Burning – Future Lost and Found (LLB 3) and it is realized with the financial support of the “Creative Europe” Programme of the European Union and the National Culture Fund under the programme “Targeted Support “Creative Europe” in partnership with Goethe-Institut Bulgaria.

Why dance? Different times and cultures propose different answers to this question. They intersect in the need to legitimate the significance of dance as an art form and cultural practice and to give it a value. How is it defined? This talk will discuss approaches to its conceptualization emerging from theory, practice and institutional policies.
