Roberta Milevoj (HR): Familija

24th of September at 8pm @ ZPC (Zagreb Dance Centre)

For the last couple of years, Roberta Milevoj’s choreographies have been exploring the relationship between the natural and the artificial space, looking for ways in which natural emotional experiences can be transformed into the artificial spaces of a performance. As a species gradually going extinct in nature, the elephant becomes the basis for the creation of a special dance language which examines the concept of community and begins to function as a metaphor for relationships among humans. The choreographer paid special attention to the recognition of the potential of their physical and emotional intelligence, and their moving habitus became a template for a dance piece in which eight dancers create different perspectives of the relationship and experience of the performance space. The piece creates a specific choreographic community which is formed from the discourse about nature, and becomes the discourse about corporality. Through exploring the world of animals, Family presents on stage the issues of co-existence in the world of humans, looking for new meanings of active presence in the community.

Best conditions for work are… peace and isolation, natural surroundings, and the coffee shop near by.
