PDF Dance Theater was founded by Julija Kaulinytė and Emilia Kumpulainen (Barcelona, 2018) as a mock-company. Having started off as a contemplation on absurdity, bureaucracy and commercialism in the dance industry, PDF has grown into a living, breathing, international, idealistic simulation of a dance company with a voice of its own. Topics of the shadow, human experience, connection, are tackled through holistic creative approaches in an environment that embraces authentic self-expression.
