The Pan-Adria project is a new regional cooperation program, launched in 2019.

The Pan-Adria project is organised by the EN-KNAP Institute from Ljubljana, in cooperation with cultural-artistic society Moment from Maribor and the Slovenian National Theatre from Nova Gorica (Slovenia), as well as the Croatian Cultural Center in Sušak, Rijeka, and the Zagreb Dance Center (Croatia).

The project invites professional dance artists to participate in co-productions in the new regional network.


The call for applications arose out of the desire to achieve greater visibility of contemporary dance practices and offer an avenue to improve their position in the wider socio-economic environment. That is why the partners created a new regional network that supports the production of a new dance performance.

Artists present their work in premieres and reprises at the venues of all the partners, and they also have residency support. All co-producers invest financial resources, co-production resources and pay hosting expenses.
