“Syndicate of Outlandish Entities” is a platform that mostly focuses on edgy urban genres with elements of cabaret, new burlesque, grotesque, irony and satire. We selected especially works that approach their contents in a direct, ironic, subversive and engaged way. Shows presented also exceeded established genre and frequently also conceptual frames, avoid using populist cliches and sexist, chauvinist or xenophobic statements.

We mostly present local creators, selection is supplemented with some interesting international guests, workshops and other events.

Syndicate is and initiative by Emanat Institute, dedicated to promoting contemporary dance and performance from establishment in 2007. Besides stage shows, publishing and educational activities we are also developing the genres of new burlesque, cabaret and contemporary performance with own cycle Image Snatchers and in collaboration with different NGO actors and venues we are for several years organising quality and well-accepted workshops for local creators, devised by internationally acclaimed creators in the genres.
