The Artistic Association Po:ruszeni invites all dance enthusiasts to the b•move•d Warsaw Dance Festival, which will take place in Warsaw from February 29 to March 4, 2024. The program includes a showcase of dance theater performances from both national and international artists, meetings with creators, dance workshops, and a competition for small choreographic forms. Topics such as art and science, human relationships with nature, and mental health will be explored by artists in dialogue with the festival audience.

The event will kick off with the premiere performance of the play “Garden of Delights” by B.Sides Dance Company, choreographed by Paweł Michno. In the following days, artists from Poland and Italy will perform at the Garnizon Sztuki and Teatr WAM in Warsaw, addressing themes such as human-nature relationships, fascination with other cultures, the intersection of art and science, and the exploration of mental health issues. Wojciech Furman will present a highly personal dance interpretation of the latter in his performance “Just Three More Times.”

The b•move•d Warsaw Dance Festival program caters not only to dance enthusiasts but also to professionals in the field. Workshops on contemporary dance will be led by, among others, Felix Arjona (Spain) and Pablo Girolami (Italy), creating a space for the exchange of experiences and the exploration of diverse, including culturally diverse, styles.

For the younger generation of creators seeking inspiration and opportunities to showcase their work, there is a competition for small choreographic forms called “Rhythms of Nature.”

The festival will conclude with an evening featuring the Italian dance theater IVONA Dance Company, presenting the performances “Manbuhsa” and “RER,” choreographed by Pablo Girolami.

“We invite everyone – regardless of age or experience – who feels a connection to dance and nature,” says Paweł Michno, the initiator and artistic director of the festival. He adds that the event will also be family-friendly.

“We hope that the b•move•d Warsaw Dance Festival will permanently become a part of the city’s artistic calendar, evolving into an intergenerational and intercultural platform for meetings, experiments, and inspiration,” adds Adrianna Michno, co-founder of the Po:ruszeni association.
