For the fourth year in a row the international contemporary dance festival New Baltic Dance‘14 organizes a project of critical writing Šokis žodžiu – ne[w]kritika (Dance through Word – Not[new]criticism). The coordinators and the participants of the project kindly invite festival’s audience to open lectures with critics and discussions with artists. All those who feel for the creative “kitchen” of dance, who aren‘t afraid to share their thoughts with dance artists and who are enthralled by the choreographers, dancers and critics are welcome.
