ONE DANCE WEEK (former Sofia Dance Week) is a festival for contemporary dance and performance organized by ONE Foundation for Culture and Arts.
The festival started in 2008 as the only forum in the country entirely devoted to contemporary dance. Over the years, the festival presented some of the most intriguing phenomena in the sphere of contemporary performing arts practices, including performances from Europe, Asia and America, which show different dance trends and demonstrate the differences and the variety of ideas for dance in the globalized world. In 2014 for the first time the festival was held in Plovdiv in support of the candidature of the city for European Capital of Culture 2019 which is a fact. For this reason, the festival changed its name from Sofia Dance Week to ONE DANCE WEEK.
ONE Foundation for Culture and Arts organizes one of the biggest and most distinguished festival labels in the Balkans working within the fields of design, dance and urban environment - ONE DESIGN WEEK, ONE ARCHITECTURE WEEK and ONE DANCE WEEK. They turn the organization into a significant and sustained platform which plays an important role in popularizing Bulgarian contemporary culture, both at home and abroad and which supports the realization of innovative international cultural events of public significance in collaboration with international organizations. ONE discovers, selects, and presents innovative artistic projects and the people behind them.
