LITTLE TRAGEDY (2011)

Premiere: February 17th, 2011
Venue: Zagreb Dance centre, Zagreb
Author: Marija Šćekić

INFO

Little Tragedy is a full evening audio-visual show and also the first vertical dance performance in the Republic of Croatia. Living on the edge is the main idea of a new dance work by Marija Šćekić about an injured bird dying due to fatal flight towards skyscraper in Zagreb. The Law on nature protection explicitly forbids any manipulation with wild animals. Wild animals are daily injured in traffic, due to poaching activities, intentional mutilation and raptors due to superstition in some parts of Croatia. Awap Association in Croatia is dealing with these and similar problems every day.
The “free fall” sequence in the performance when Marija Scekic throws herself from a 3m high platform (secured by rope rigging system) is a symbolical manifestation of danger, risk-taking, anxiety, courage and fear caused by modern life and urban boundaries. This performance was reconstructed for open space and became the symbol for future collaboration between Histeria Nova and Paklenica National park within the framework of “The Gates of Velebit” project for promotion of vertical dance as a new form of art in Croatia but also cultural and natural heritage of Velebit mountain.
