We look into the latest achievements and tendencies of Visegrad and Balkan performing arts scene where some dynamic and vibrant artistic experiments are being made, blurring the borders between the genres. Also, we listen to the performing arts festivals which address political/social/cultural issues of the past and the present.

[PART 3] Visegrad & Balkan Cultural Cooperation for Tomorrow

Which collaborations do we witness within East Europe and Visegrad & Balkan countries of nowadays? We look into the EEPAP(East European Performing Arts Platform) which is an international platform of co-operation for young performing artists, curators and producers working in the countries situated at the eastern border of the European Union.
