EMANAT, Institute for development and affirmation of dance and contemporary art  


The aim of the institute Emanat is to affirm contemporary dance art as a topical, alive field of artistic creativity and to develop the area through establishing different structures and modes of activity, with which dance enacts and enhances its creative structures.

Institute Emanat advances the activity in three areas: artistic production, education and publishing activity. The three-part structure enacts the main vision of the institute as the notion emanation, making it concrete with a reciprocal intertwinement of individual activities. The central is the production of performances, while at the same time, the institute promotes education and publishing activity as the key elements of the development of the art of dance.

Emanat was established in 2006 by choreographer, dancer and pedagogue Maja Delak, who is current director, artistic leader and chief editor of the book series Transitions.
