International Movement Festival U:NEW – DANCE HIGHWAYS aims to popularize contemporary dance in its new forms and to strengthen the cooperation of Polish artists with European partners.The idea behind the festival is to pay particular attention to themes related to ecology: green transformation, climate change and the future of our planet, as well as the urban fabric, human rights, cultural identity and tolerance. An important element of the festival are the DANCE HIGHWAYS workshops and DANCE HIGHWAYS transnational meetings supported by the European Union within the framework of Erasmus +, which aim to exchange good practices between professionals in the field of contemporary dance and related arts and to raise the competence of dance artists through dance workshops of various techniques.
DANCE HIGHWAYS is a European project that brings together six contemporary dance partners the L’espace ASDC and Zappulla DMN Company in Palermo, the Theatre Developement Foundation ‘NEW WAVE’ and collective HOTELOKO movement makers in Warsaw, the THEATER DER KLÄNGE in Düsseldorf, Davvi – Centre for Performing Arts/Norway, La Fundicion in Bilbao and the Galerie Chorégraphique in Carcassonne. This international project will implement until September 2022 a European calendar of transnational mobilities, with the aim of sharing good practices between experts and offering ongoing professional training workshops for contemporary dancers.

U:NEW is the result of a wave of new approaches to the art of experimental dance and performance in Poland and Europe. U:NEW is a flow of actions that touch upon our reality and identity. It is a collection of images that present this change. It is an attempt to understand the speed of developing technologies and to find one’s place in this new space. It is absurd, comical and authentic actions that unite individuals in search. These are sincere confessions and artistic demands. It is an interactive image of small and big cities. It is a dialogue and a voice in the discussion on the future of Europe. A detailed programme will be available soon.
