KUC TRAVNO (Božidara Magovca 17, Zagreb)
The program consists of:
projection of documentary film “NEW FORMS – NEW TERRITORIES” (10 min) created through VERTICAL DANCE FORUM project initiated by Fabrice Guilllot (Cie Retouramont Company) and cofunded by European Union – Creative Europe programme.
EQUILIBRIUM – is a vertical and somatic dance show by Marija Šćekić about the balance of two diferrent dynamic systems. The performance is combining vertical dance with contemporary dance sommatic body approach to highlight the psychology of human movement.
The first system comprises three bodies tied to ropes that are “hanging in the void” of the stage. The ropes function as a sort of “umbilical cord” through which they breathe air and collect information about the world around them and by means of which they communicate. The other system comprises only one body, partially attached to a bundle of nylon threads . Although rather similar at first glance, these two systems are nothing alike whatsoever. Their mutual interaction provokes certain reactions that cause breaking of their connections, tearing of the cords (ropes), dividing of the nylon threasd and a dynamic collapse, which all results in throwing the bodies off balance. Despite this “vulnerability”, all the bodies are brought back into balance, some of them sooner… some a little bit later.
