1st Block | WHITE BOX SESSIONS

22nd 24th APRIL 2021

We are placing the first block of ANTISEZONA in 2021., WHITE BOX SESSIONS, into the spaces of MSU’s permanent display. WHITE BOX SESSIONS emerged from the challenges of opening new artistic and communication solutions, since we are currently deprived of accessing the black box theatre stage at Gorgona hall, that is still damaged after the earthquake, and waiting to be repaired. Since the first edition of ANTISEZONA, our programming followed the direction of “staying with the trouble” and reacting to the unpredictability of the times in which we are creating our dances, choreographies and performances, thus the transition into digital, textual and discursive media are already part of our practice. Now, we are working in a white box situation, in the vast white space of the permanent exhibition space of the Museum (while listening to the echo of its volume and reacting to the power of its architecture). Herewith we continue our interaction (intra-action) with the primary function of the museum, which is in the meeting point between contemporary art (visual, kinetic, conceptual, film and new media) and the public.

The program brings two returning performances: CloseUps by Divert and Silvia Marchig and How Many Cubic Centimeters Is My Body Allowed to Take by Studio TRAS and Sonja Pregrad. We are presenting the practice Obed by our guests Torvald Silver and Tehvan Ratsanik and the brand-new programme – Performative Writing Lab (emerging through the project The Devil’s Advocate Writing Txtformance by Divert) led by Nina Gojić and Martina Tomić. The lab invites everybody interested in working on text as an expanded choreographic practice and writing as a performative practice. The block also brings our additional programmes – Hangover Sessions, moderated by Dejan Srhoj, guest dance artist from Slovenia, and our hybrid improv – reflection – interview session Close Encounters of the Dance Kind, in which all the performers from this block are participating in.
