Choreographic Forum 2023

Date of event6. – ⁠9. 10. 2023 |  Place of eventPrague

The Choreographic Forum is a moderated discussion of experts and enthusiasts of dance, performance and contemporary art, held as part of the international festival 4+4 Days in Motion.

The discussion focuses on a specific topic based on the dance and performative aspects of performances in dialogue with contemporary art. Through discussions, we seek to understand and reflect the themes and phenomena that influence artists' thinking and artistic production. And in this way, to enrich the collective knowledge of our dynamically developing field. The chosen topic for this year is "The role of the maker vs. The role of the audience".

For whom the event is intended:

(1) Professional public: dance professionals: active dancers, choreographers, dance teachers, dance students, dance critics and journalists, curators, theoreticians, artists and theoreticians from diverse disciplines –⁠ visual artists, architects, scenographers, etc.

(2) Other public: audience interested in understanding contemporary choreography and contemporary arts.


The discussion will be led by experts:

  • Irene Filiberti (dance critic and art consultant working for Centre Pompidou, FR),
  • Linus Gratte (curator of performing arts and public programs at Centre Pompidou, FR),
  • Markéta Fantová (scenographer and artistic director of PQ, CZ), and other guests.
