The 12th edition of the International Contemporary Dance Festival Body/Mind will be held between 20 – 27 September 2013.

Body/Mind Festival is the contemporary dance festival, which has been continually organized for over 10 years. Every year in autumn for several days, people enthusiastic about both theater and dance have the opportunity to see the newest works of foreign choreographers as well as Polish artists. For a few days, they can meet with the most important performances of the worldwide contemporary dance scene.

The festival, which likes to annoy, to shake the audiences out of their self-satisfaction and the safe way they took, this year will not focus on only one specific topic. It will raise a fundamental question about the future of contemporary dance. It will ponder over what inspires and urges the artists of tomorrow. It will provide an exciting insight into the present state of contemporary dance and it will touch upon a wide array of problems and dilemmas of modern society – says about this year’s 12th edition C/U Artistic Director Edyta Kozak.
