Performing Arts Central Europe - Visegrad Countries Focus

Performing Arts Central Europe – Visegrad Countries Focus (PACE.V4) 

PACE.V4 is a project of a continuous co-operation of Visegrad performing artistic and cultural organizations. This network has been established by the Arts and Theatre Institute in Prague and supported by the Ministry of Culture Czech Republic and the International Visergad Fund  in 2012 in order to develop a common presentation and research strategy with the goals to strengthen the coherence of the Visegrad group countries, to foster its visibility at the international cultural scene, to promote current performing arts sector of the Visegrad countries and the brand “Visegrad” in general and to enhance international contacts and co-operation of Visegrad artists and stakeholders on the international level. We are active as in priority international events such as the biggest world performing arts markets or important international theatre/dance festivals, so within the Visegrad region (conferences, meetings, workshops, presentations, networking program).


Activities in 2018:

Remembering 1918 - European Dreams of Becoming Modern

The project is a contribution to the ongoing debate about the future of Europe, channeling the specific voice of each of the V4 countries. The project plans to explore the cultural and political legacy of the interwar era and to facilitate dialogue about perception of the past and its relevance for the present and our understanding of public cultural values and role of arts in the present. The performative and dance performance will be the flagship of a whole series of events coorganized by BOZAR- Centre for Finer Arts in Brussels and dealing with the topic of 1918 and the following period through various media (film, architecture, etc.) through the whole year 2018. The coproductio project is developed by artists from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary, Lithuania, Austria, Rumania and Belgium.
