From the theory of inertia: Natural opposition of the mass to any changes of the movement we call “inertial resistance” or “inertia”.

One can not see the phenomenon of inertia, but it can be sensed as pressure (oppression), sometimes painful.

Inertia is a crucial factor influencing the multiplication of action patterns.

Lublin Dance Theatre was established in 2001 by Hanna Strzemiecka, the Theatre’s choreographer and artistic director. However, LDT originates from the Contemporary Dance Group of Lublin University of Technology (1993), which was one of the first, independent contemporary dance theatres in Poland. After several years from the start of its operation the Group developed its own original style and started to be recognised in Poland and abroad. Thanks to the consistent implementation of their artistic mission a professional dance theatre was established at the Culture Centre in Lublin.

Lublin Dance Theatre, both individually or in cooperation with the Contemporary Dance Group of Lublin University of Technology, also initiates and organises cultural and educational projects, such as the annual International Lublin Dance Theatres Festival – since 1997, Contemporary Dance Forum for Polish Dance Theatres – since 2003, Chagall Festival in Lublin – 2003, Polish Contemporary Dance Festival in Helsinki – 2004. Lublin Dance Theatre has been a participant of numerous festivals and presentations in Poland – Bytom, Kraków, Warszawa, Gdansk, Poznan and worldwide – USA, Switzerland, France, Hungary, Germany, Russia, Lithuania, Belarus, The Netherlands, Finland, Austria. www.ltt.art.pl / taniec@ck.lublin.pl
