For this first edition of the international festival eXplore dance foccused on the young female choreographers, dominating the artistic scene by their creation for the last five years in Romania. The guests’ selection for the festival was also made upon our perception of lack of visibility of the female choreographers, despite their dynamism. Therefore the festival presented versions and visions of the feminine, personal explorations, experiments. The festival invited 9 artists form France, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Romania to present their work. Last but not the least the young audience was the main aim we settled.
