A pioneer in the development and promotion of contemporary dance in Slovenia since 1984, the Dance Theatre Ljubljana (or PTL) is one the most important contemporary dance production venues in Ljubljana, presenting both its own productions and domestic and foreign performances.

PTL offers regular professional contemporary dance classes and organises the biennial Ukrep - Festival of Dance Perspectives since 2008.

Background

Ljubljana Dance Theatre was initiated by the choreographer and dancer Ksenija Hribar (also one of the co-founders of the London Contemporary Dance Theatre and recipient of the Župančič Award of the City of Ljubljana) and co-founded with the choreographer and director Damir Zlatar Frey. The establishment of the theatre presented a decisive step towards the professionalisation of contemporary dance in Slovenia and the then-Yugoslavia. Under the artistic leadership of Ksenija Hribar (Damir Zlatar Frey left the theatre in 1986), PTL was an open dance-theatre group that created a number of stylistically ground-breaking and widely influential performances. Until 1996, when PTL obtained its own rehearsal and performing spaces in the Prule neighbourhood of Ljubljana, the majority of performances were presented on the stages of Cankarjev dom, Mladinsko Theatre, Kapelica Gallery and elsewhere. During the next years, the theatre was led artistically by Ksenija Hribar, Matjaž Farič and Sinja Ožbolt.


About

During 30 years of creative activities, over 250 full-length dance-theatre productions, experimental projects, and performances for children have been staged and several of them have won important (also international) awards. Nowadays, PTL functions as an umbrella production house to several acclaimed choreographers with very different modes of aesthetic expression, such as Tanja Zgonc, Sinja Ožbolt, Matjaž Farič, Rosana Hribar and Gregor Luštek, and Maša Kagao Knez. PTL collaborates with the majority of Slovene independent institutes and regularly enters international co-productions. Its productions regularly appear at the Gibanica (Moving Cake) Festival of Slovene Dance which it has been co-organising since its beginnings in 2003.

Each year, Ljubljana Dance Theatre also produces a début by an emerging maker, offering rehearsal spaces and post-production support.

For a list of PTL's partners and co-producers see below.

Ukrep – Festival of Dance Perspectives

In 2008, the biennial festival Ukrep (Taking Measures) – Festival of Dance Perspectives was launched. Attempting to redefine the emancipatory potential of contemporary dance and performing arts practices, the festival focuses on presenting emerging (contemporary) dance makers and aims for a strategic development of contemporary dance in Slovenia, also through a number of discussions and theoretical/dramaturgy workshops organised in the festival's side programme.
