Project summary

The project supports the development of a new dance performance by Matea Bilosnić, during her residency work at the Perforations festival (HRV), in collaboration with the international festival Mladi Levi (SVN) and Sola Festival (SRB). The artistic work deals with the performative and choreographic potential of digital communication technologies, with a focus on the phenomenon of information overload and the infinity of interpretation. It aims to design an environment where virtual information is transcended through movement, body, voice, and text; one that reimagines the heroic position that a person could embody in the modern world.
