Burdąg Foundation was launched by Marysia Stokłosa, president of the Foundation. It supports experiments, innovative productions and educational projects in the field of contemporary dance, new dance, performance and interdisciplinary art activities. Its aim is to develop and promote these forms of art and new ideas related to them. Burdąg Foundation wants to reduce distance between Poland’s and the world's dance scenes, allowing choreographers, dancers and other artists from various countries to collaborate on international artistic and educational projects. The Foundation runs a centre for creative work Burdąg in the Masuria region.
The Foundation, by providing spaces of the centre for work and concentration, has assisted many groups, such as Dada von Bzdülöw Theatre and Bretoncaffe Theatre in creating their dance performances.
