Carrying out its mission, Zelyonka suggests permanent collaboration to choreographers, dance theatres, festivals, educational establishments and non-governmental organizations from different regions of Ukraine. We work extensively with the All-Ukrainian Association “Contemporary Dance Platform”, which is a legal partner of the festival.
Any forms of collaboration are implemented on the basis of two leading vectors of the organization’s work:
- building contemporary dance audience and its development;
- creating new possibilities both for professionals of contemporary dance and amateurs aspiring to become a part of the professional community.
We are open to any suggestions of cooperation and collaboration in the area of organization of dancing and educational events, advertising, consulting and informational support of both individual dancers and choreographers and organizations of any form of incorporation. Zelyonka assists the Association “Contemporary Dance Platform” in creating an extensive network of individual choreographers and dance organizations, which implement mutual support and assistance in development of contemporary dance in Ukraine.
By promoting permanent ties with European cultural organizations and dance centers, we support and conduce establishing new contacts of our partners among themselves, creating possibilities for new performative projects.
Among the international partners of our organization are: the festival New Baltic Dance in Vilnius (Lithuania), Lublin Festival of Dance Theatres (Poland), the festival Plastform in Minsk (Belarus), the Polish Institute in Kiev, the British Council in Ukraine, the Embassy of the Lithuanian Republic and the cultural center Arts Printing House in Vilnius (Lithuania). Owing to cooperation with these organizations, Zelyonka Fest has held a series of performances of the leading dance companies from Poland, Great Britain and Lithuania, and the series of workshops and panel discussions within the festivals of 2014-2015.
One of the basic principles of the organization’s work is the principle of equality and diversity. This means that Zelyonka tends to creating equal possibilities for all who wishes to take part both in the organization’s work and in its events.
