GIBANICA – Biennial of Slovenian Contemporary Dance Art
Since 2003 the Gibanica (Moving Cake) Festival of Slovene Dance has been a competitive contemporary dance festival whose name is a pun on the Slovene verb for moving (gibati) and a traditional Slovene pastry (gibanica), which varies from region to region. The biennial festival presents an overview of the most outstanding Slovene dance performance of the preceding 2 years.
The first 4 editions of the festival were organised by the Exodos Institute, in collaboration withCankarjev dom Culture and Congress Centre, Vitkar Institute, Bunker Institute, En-Knap Productions, and Dance Theatre Ljubljana. Since 2011 the festival is managed by the Contemporary Dance Association Slovenia in cooperation with a network of partners.
