Snježana Premuš: Relation as Architecture 2
Monday 16/03/2009 at 8 pm, MMC Kibla - the second dance-improvisation-discussion event in the cycle of four evenings "Relation as architecture" by the choreographer Snježana Premuš. This time a new challenge was posed to three artists: Miha Horvat (son:DA), Leja Jurišič and Ivan Mijačević. The discussion was hosted by Andreja Kopač. Technical support: Jure Vekjet.
"Relation as architecture" will present renowned Slovenian dancers active at home and in international environment. The focus will be on the interaction of the dynamic and the structural as well as the role of discursive rules with regard to external circumstances and to the basic idea or inspiration. To this end each event will be followed by an improvised discussion between the artists and the audience.
"An improviser in space is also the virtuoso of the moment, in which they recognise internal desires and intentions of the co-improviser as well as external circumstances, which they realise through decisions or movement actions. At the same time they recognise the integration of art and life as well as the balance and articulation of external circumstances, which they must take in consideration during the performance - but not at the expense of their own idea or inspiration."
