Chorea Theatre was founded in 2004 as a result of the collaboration between two groups of performers; The Ancient Orchestra, who develop musical and rhythmical work; and the Dancers of the Labyrinth, who experiment with movement.

In 2007 Chorea and Lodz Art Centre co-founded a cultural institution named The Art Factory, which is situated in an industrial theatre space in the city of Lodz. Over the past eight years Chorea Theatre has developed its educational and artistic programme. Chorea artists have organised many international workshop sessions, two editions of their own international theatre festival, and produced more than 25 theatre productions, trans-national artistic projects, performances, and concerts.

Chorea's Take Over Festival will be a part of the Retroperspektywy International Theatre Festival
