From the organizer:

“Creativity takes courage” – as French artist Henri Matisse said.

In the process of art practice, it seems that the artist must always accompany that courage. The artists with very specific and unique personalities, they even need a greater bravery to live truly with artistic personality in social life.

An interesting talk show with strong and bold characteristic dancers from three generations – three creative forms – three different paths on a fascinating topic: “Bravery and choice”.

Some of the questions you might get yourselves an answer are: On each way we choose, how mature artists can understand and “follow” their creative personality? How to find communities who understand and appreciate their work? How to balance what they you with what others want in you? Where to find strength when what you create seems to be less interested / shared?
