SE.S.TA – Centre for Choreographic Development

SE.S.TA was founded as early as in 1999: since 2010 it has been operating as the first Centre for Choreographic Development in the Czech Republic. SE.S.TA's objective is to foster the development of professional contemporary dance in the Czech Republic in international context.


SE.S.TA offers artists diverse forms of further professional development: One of the forms in which an artist can personally develop is confrontation with different ways of thinking and creating. Professional encounters: of performers, pedagogues and theoreticians, of different artistic fields and different cultures.

Confrontation means working together, thinking together, observe the work of our colleagues and to communicate with the public on different levels.

It is in the above specified directions that the activities of SE.S.TA's are developed.

4 missions of SE.S.TA's activities:
