eXplore dance festival had reached its 4th edition and it remains the only international contemporary dance festival organized every year in Bucharest.

eXplore dance festival continues to show the Romanian audience dance performances relevant for the international choreografical context and it integrates the Romanian contemporary dance within the frame generated by these tendencies, this being the key-aim of the festival. Therefore, the Romanian audience has access to the values of the international dance world, by watching fine performances, by meeting important artists, by taking part in conferences, debates and interdisciplinary events organized within the festival.

Every edition is set under a fundamental concept, which reveals the function of dance in certain areas of reality. This year, the key concept of the festival is: Time to Think. At a certain time, in the Greek antiquity, to think was a synonym of the verb to be. Maybe it’s time to think about the perfect way to be where we really belong in the international dance context.
