Dance Theatre Ljubljana is home of contemporary dance in Ljubljana since 1984.
Founded in 1984, Dance Theatre Ljubljana (PTL) was first institution dedicated to contemporary dance in Slovenia.
Throughout the 1980s, PTL played a pioneering role in the development and promotion of contemporary dance in Slovenia. Most of today's established contemporary dance choreographers and dancers have collaborated with the theatre, and some of them later founded their own companies in the 1990s (e.g. Flota Institute, Fourklor, etc.).
Recently, the theatre constitutes itself increasingly as a production venue, presenting around 80 performances a year, including both its own productions and innovative domestic and foreign performances. PTL is a member of IETM, Contemporary Dance Association Slovenia and Asociacija, Association of Arts and Culture NGOs and Freelancers.
