In our program, performing arts are viewed in the broadest sense, covering choreography, theater practices, performance art, trans- and interdisciplinary works. We approach these versatile practices from movement because we believe that the body is a valuable reference point, whatever we choose to focus on as a performer and creator.

Where: ZeroPlus Dance Studio, Budapest, Hungary
