Carte Blanche

One of the main partners of  "Kultura Futura"  is Carte Blanche - the Norwegian national contemporary dance group - often referred to as a precursor of innovation, presentation, and dance development. Its exciting and unique repertoire is recognized and admired in the international area.

Carte Blanche was founded in 1989 in Bergen, which is still its headquarters area. It is a public cultural institution belonging to the Ministry of Culture of Norway, Hordaland County Council, and the City of Bergen. 12-15 dancers of different nationalities are members of the Carte Blanche art team, which is why the group conducts many international projects such as the co-production of performances. The Norwegian Contemporary Dance Society aims to support, produce and present innovative artistic practices in contemporary dance and choreography in Norway and abroad. It willingly promotes choreographers and dancers who express their critical view on the social construct through dance.

As part of the first edition of the Interdisciplinary Biennale of Art and Technology of the Future, Carte Blanche will perform in the Małopolska Garden of Arts in Cracow.  Their performance is called Game, and it combines elements of contemporary dance and audiovisual performance using VR technology. This innovative project combines the real and virtual worlds and is an example of using new technologies in choreography.

Carte Blanche artistic residencies in Krakow are planned. During performances, the audience will learn about the art techniques used by Carte Blanche artists (in modern choreography, new technologies and Virtual Reality). During the residency, there will be workshops for actors who will exchange their know-how about practices and experiences of implementing new technologies on stage.
