With each new edition, U[KREP] – Festival of Dance Perspectives tries to bring the audience closer to selected topics and subjects touching upon the broader dance theatre scene both in Slovenia and abroad. Despite the fact that our “reality” is marked by COVID 19, the current pandemic is changing, but not stopping the seventh edition of the biennial festival, which has always been designed as a response to the existing conditions and needs of the local dance scene in liaising with the international arena. We have decided not to cancel or postpone the festival, but rather to expand, upgrade and change the original edition into a twelve-month cultural project, carried out in three programme clusters taking place between June 2020 and June 2021, assuming that we will be able to gradually carry out the programme within the set (adjusted) framework. In June, the topic of the festival will be “New Reality”, while the end of 2020 and the beginning of 2021 will be reserved for the biggest part of the international programme, with a “grand finale” in June 2021. In this way, the seventh edition of the U[KREP] 2020 will once again take place as a diverse, incisive and innovative festival of local and international contemporary dance creativity with necessary exceptions.
