In June 2023 SzólóDuó International Dance Festival is organized for the 24th time by Orkestika Foundation. We are pleased that after two years SzólóDuó will be held as a live event again! It is coming back from the online space to the stage, and this year exceptionally it will take place in Bytom, Poland!
The aim of SzólóDuó is to encourage beginner and well experienced creators, performers and dancers to introduce their work to the general public. The Foundation creates an opportunity during the festival to every performer to represent their artistic ideas and to receive feedback for their professional development.
