PO.V.S.TANZE



Foundation
In 1997 several almost independent dancers in Moscow organized a group PO.V.S.Tanze which means almost inwardly free dances as the abbreviation, and the all word means rebels.  It was an experimental project in the field of dance performance and improvisation. A successful performing at the international festival "Pushkin & Goethe" in 1999 in Moscow gave them cause for creating a professional dance
group.



Company policy
 
We are interested in dance, theatre and performing art in the context of research and open dialogue with the audience and other artists.
Po.V.S.Tanze creates their performances according to the principle of a joint choreography. The participants each have equal rights in shaping the rehearsal process and creation itself. The leadership passes from one choreographer to other under the demands of the process.
The choreography language is determined by the idea and the theme of a concrete performance, by the search of an individual language of each of the dancers.
The search of choreographic material always starts from an improvisation and research experiment. "PO.V.S.Tanze" Dance Company stays open to collaboration with other congenial forms of contemporary art, other choreographers, dancers, theatre and cinema figures, musicians and artists.
