25. Czech Dance Platform
1. - 4. 4. 2019, Prague

The platform is now a quarter century old! After 25 years, we could look back briefly to reflect on the huge and rapid development of professional contemporary dance in the Czech Republic. The Platform supported its first tentative steps and has continued to look after it well into its maturity. This year's program convinced us that it is in great shape!

Look how the 25th Czech Dance Platform looked like:
