BROCHURE of L1danceFest 2011

L1danceFest 2011 – Budapest, 21–25 September 2011

10 years of the L1 Contemporary Dance Festival


L1 Association’s contemporary dance festival has been presenting performances since 2002: at first mainly the performances of the Association members, a collective of independent Hungarian artists, then later other talented - national and international - dancers and groups joined the festival as well.

Jubilee is the beginning of a new era: from 2011 we keep on working with a new name, with members, opening up for new dimensions. 

The program selection of the L1danceFest 2011 is marked by the professional criteria and experimental vein of Márta Ladjánszki – dancer, choreographer and artistic director of the festival: “This year as well I have tried to invite artists whom I personally know and whose works have inspired me.” The goal of the festival is to introduce artists still unknown to the Hungarian public (in Budapest and later in the countryside as well), who have unique character, sophisticated knowledge and high level technical routine.

The contemporary dance festival has been gradually developing into a more and more extensive international review (both geographically, and concerning the amount of performances), that offers performing opportunities not only to L1 Association members and resident artists, but aims to introduce the works of recognized international artists to the Hungarian audience.

Participating countries this year: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden, Catalonia.
