The main idea of dance exploration platform is to create space for artists to research dance field and present their findings to the public, while keeping focus on contemporary dance.
In 2007 BITES began as a contemporary dance festival “Bičių sąskrydis” with the aim to present performances, sketches or excerpts made by already well-known dancers, choreographers and also young dance artists or future professionals. Since 2016 BITES focuses more on creative process. Platform is interested in the way dance interacts with different genres, expressions, and ideas. BITĖS try to encourage dance exploration through documentation, analysis and notation research, including creative collaborations across dance, film, music, visual art, technology and science.
Organized by public entity “Artopia”.
