Arka Dance Theatre was set up in 1999, started with a performance"Miedzy nami czlowiekami" presented in The Capitol Musical Theatre in Wroclaw. Dance Theatre Arka in Wroclaw results from Jacek Gebura and a group of people seeking for a kind of theatre where the leading means of expression is movement.

The main characters of the presentation are: movement and its quality, rhythm, the articulation and dynamism of the dancer's movement, creating the space and the awareness of being in it. The harmonic coexistence of the aforementioned qualities describes the actor/dancer, constructs the character, which is the result of "here and now", determines the relations among the performers. Arka Dance Theatre tries to smile at the human imperfections, however showing a man in positive colors. A significant thing for Arka Dance Theatre is searching for proper matter and means, in order to communicate with the audience, but the ensemble does not avoid the intended absurd and abstraction. The shows are based on juggling the means from the set realizing the construction. Awareness, movement, space, body - these are the basic definitions of the essential assumptions of Arka Dance Theatre dance experiences.

Address: 321/89 Krzywoustego Street
