Annoucning Tamara Bračun’s first independent work as an author and choreographer under the title A Blink of Silence. The dance and creation for the performance are signed by Marina Bura and Tamara Bračun. Unfortunately, Marina is injured, and for the needs of this performance, she is replaced by dancer Anita Rumac.
A Blink of Silence is a narrative dance duet that shows us what happens in our body and mind when we are forced to be without physical contact, that is, touch, and how this fact affects our psychophysical health. Humans are social creatures and we need hugs and touch to survive. Physical, emotional and mental connection with another human being.
A Blink of Silence reveals the emotional and social states we enter when we lack the sense of touch. Through the connection of one or two bodies, the threads that connect us with ourselves or with another individual are interwoven. Can we fully connect in the harmony of spirit and body if we lack the touch of another individual? We need touch like air, we live and breathe through touch.
