This paper shall present recent research conducted for the purposes of a series of theme exhibitions at Korčula Town Museum on island dance Kumpanija, a protected intangible heritage of the Republic of Croatia, as well as tangible and intangible sources exhibitions
are based on, and the changes observed in contemporary performance practices. The research was motivated by the 28th symposium of the International Council for Traditional Music (ICTM) Study Group on Ethnochoreology held in July 2014 on the
island of Korčula. This paper brings a short overview of native researchers, starting with the earliest published texts dating back to the end of the 19th century, "re-discovered" connections, first contacts and first visits by foreign researchers who came to Korčula
in the first decades of the 20th century in order to see and experience these unique performances first hand. Despite the changes in performance practices, it seems that, by adapting to contemporary performance practices, Kumpanija from the island of Korčula found a new life, as testified by the growing number of performances each year.
