SHADOW (2004)

Premiere: July 26th, 2018
Venue: Summer of Culture Festival, Osijek
Author: Marija Šćekić

INFO

“SJENA” (Shadow) balances between forms of classical ballet, contemporary dance, butoh and free jazz music. It is an attempt to create dance which dwells within opposite dynamics of two dancers, completely different in terms of their race, sex, age, nationality, cultural background, dance education and artistic expression, political and religious beliefs. The performances were nominated in three categories (choreography, performance and creation) and got awarded with Croatian Dramatic Artist’s Award for the best dance creation in whole.

“In that space, these opposites, which hold the framework of social, cultural, aesthetic and other ideologies like a safety net, implode and disappear. Thanks to its abstract form, Shadow rejects ordinary categories of representation and instead of the dancers underlining their mutual otherness with their oppositeness, they co-exist on stage with a dance which arises from the simple and quiet levels of the body freeing each other from the limits of fixed bodily Vibrations of Emptiness. Duality thus becomes a channel for one’s own self-obliteration and with Shadow we participate in the creation of a new (stage) reality which comes closer to the ideal of continuance in the body which is not conditioned by this time and this space.“ (Iva Nerina Sibila, published in Magazine Kretanja No. 06, from Croatian stages)
