Hungary's two devoted initiators of international artistic collaboration, Trafó – House of Contemporary Arts and Workshop Foundation are organising the second edition of the platform for contemporary Hungarian performing arts entitled dunaPart, to be held from 20 - 22 January 2011 in Budapest.

The platform’s main objective is to present performing arts professionals – managers, programmers, curators, theatre and (performing arts) festival directors – visiting Hungary for these 3 days with outstanding examples of the independent Hungarian performing arts scene. The programme will consist of eight theatre and ten dance performances. Visiting theatre and dance professionals and ex-pats who live in Hungary will have a great opportunity to see performances in their original settings with English surtitles. The dynamic programme, over a long weekend, will give everyone – whether they live in Budapest or in the provinces – a good chance to see what they have previously missed.
These performances, along with professional events and discussions, will make up a three-day programme centred on four venues (Merlin Theatre, MU Theatre, Szkéné and Trafó House of Contemporary Arts). 

The organisers' further purpose is to demonstrate and bring to the attention of executives that independent, creative theatre and dance companies outside the established theatre framework are an organic part of Hungarian and international artistic life, a section of our culture which must be supported and not allowed to die of neglect.
