Fundacja Cialo/Umysl was established in 2007. The non-profit organisation is dedicated to the broadly defined art of contemporary dance. Its mission is to create professional conditions for manifesting, developing and promoting this discipline as well as creating a space for dialogue between artists and viewers. C/U produces works by Polish and other European artists, and organises conferences, educational projects and the annual international Cialo/Umysl Festival. It regularly presents Polish artists at the Warsaw Dance Scene and promotes young talents during the Warsaw Dance Night. One of the C/U program’s priorities is to work with and for the local communities and to encourage dance lovers. It presents around 60 events every year. The foundation supports daring and open minded artists, for whom body and mind are the starting point for creative action.
