Flota, a nonprofit cultural institution for the organisation and realisation of cultural events, was established in 2001 by the dancer and choreographer Matjaž Farič. Flota produces dance performances by numerous choreographers, such as Matjaž Farič, Snježana Premuš, Tina Dobaj Eder, Gregor Kamnikar and Milan Tomašik.

Since 2006 Flota has organised the Front@ Contemporary Dance Festival, based in Murska Sobota, thus contributing to the decentralisation of contemporary dance in Slovenia. In the last decade Flota Institute has developed strong international partnerships and now participates in the Dance Explorations Beyond Front@ network, which it established with the support of the European Commission.


International cooperation

In 2003–2005 Flota collaborated with the Swedish organisation Intercult in the international project SEAS, which united artists from more than 15 European countries between the Mediterranean and the Baltic Sea.


Beyond Front@ network

Flota is the founder of the Dance Explorations Beyond Front@ network (together with Dance Week Festival, organised by Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance, Zagreb, Croatia; Pro Progressione, Budapest, Hungary; d.ID/Dance Identity, Pinkafeld, Austria; and OffenesHausOberwart (OHO), Oberwart, Austria), supported by the Culture 2007–2013 programme of the European Commission and the European Culture Foundation (ECF). The network aims to present high quality dance performances to the border areas of Slovenia, Croatia, Austria, and Hungary, to generate artistic dialogue, and foster new cross-cultural co-productions.

In 2009, the Beyond Front@ network launched the project Creation Beyond Front@, promoting artistic exchange between Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, and Austria, which resulted in the project entitled Monster Tamer, consisting of four choreographic miniatures by four choreographers, each performed by the same four dancers. The project was hosted by the network member organisations.

2012–2014 a new cycle of entitled Beyond Front@: Bridging New Territories led by the Flota Institute involves organizations from Austria, Croatia, Hungary and United Kingdom (Greenwich Dance). Cooperation between major urban areas and smaller communities in the region is encouraged, contemporary dance being a vehicle.
