Iztok Kovač



In the 1990s, the choreographer, teacher and dancer Iztok Kovač virtually out of nothing established the notion of the Slovene contemporary dance in the cultural space of Europe and beyond. In 1993 he founded the international dance company En-Knap in Leuven, Belgium, under the wings of Klapstuk Festival; a year later the group moved its headquarters to Ljubljana, where Iztok Kovač established EN-KNAP Productions. After 14 years of project-based work, in 2007 he founded the international dance company EnKnapGroup, the first permanent ensemble for contemporary dance in Slovenia, thus beginning working on a repertory basis. Two years later EN-KNAP Productions was entrusted the management of the Španski Borci Cultural Centre in Ljubljana, where Iztok Kovač is the artistic director and programmer of the domestic and international programme. In addition to 30 own projects, artistic direction and pedagogical work, his opus includes also five dance films. For his work, Iztok Kovač has received prominent domestic and international awards.
