Communication is understood as a process of transferring information through verbal words, non-verbal signs, written word or as a transfer of information through modern communication technology. However, in order to have a successful communication the process should be a two-way oriented and communication should create meaning and mutual understanding, and communication should inter-connect people. Indeed, we may ask ourselves how do we understand communication? What does it mean to communicate in contemporary world?In the EU, for example, bureaucracy in Brussels is trying to communicate messages of united Europe based on fundamental rights and the so-called European values, and yet majority of Europe (EU and non-EU alike) is witnessing various forms of radicalisation and growth of populism. International media are trying to transfer information on ongoing events but the coverage is often framed into opinions of writers very often bigoted and biased that increases animosities and contributes toward lack of adequate communication that could/should create mutual understanding. On the other hand, cultural communication occurs separately, and artists seem to be the only ones who are making an attempt to communicate in a way that does not create misunderstanding. This is visible in dancing troops that are performing in various places in the world, and in international film festivals, for example.
