Aspects of Love – The Two
Choreography: Zuzana Andelová
Music: Dmitrij Dmitrijevič Šostakovič: Preludium for two chellos and piano h minor
Performed by: Miriam Budzáková, Lukáš Bobalík

The choreography originates with Shapes of Love, a cycle of eight dances, inspired by the philosophical and sociological reflections of Erich Fromm’s „The Art of Loving“ and Milan Rufus’ poems on the subject of love as the cause and direction of human existence in the sense of Christian philosophy. The third part of „Two“ is the expression of love between lovers, of their endless desire to be together and of discovering a new life force inside…

Zuzana Andelová graduated from the Dance Conservatory of Eva Jaczová in Bratislava. Currently she is studying at the Academy of Performing Arts in Bratislava. She regularly performs at Academy of Performing Arts, which she represented also in the Dancing Days Vienna project (2011), in the Evening of choreography in Prague, and in the European project Peter and Lucia (2015). In November 2015, she performed at the concert of Grieg Evening during „Grieg Days“and „Norwergian Days“ (2016).

pluri

Dance: Kai Chun Chuang

Composition: Yiran Zhao

In collaboration with Hannah Eisendle

This piece arose out of a collaborative process in which each of the artists brought his or her particular expertise to bear on the creation of a single artwork.

In version 2016 our team comprises two composers Yiran Zhao and Hannah Eisendle,  and a dancer Kai Chun Chuang. Now the artists have produced a new version, simultaneously developing the physical movements as compositional material and furthermore realizing this musical material with and through live choreographed performance. This Gesamtkunstwerk furthermore employs video material as well as sonic sources from the dancer himself. The result is a game system in which many different personality types arise from, and interact on/within, a single person.

In this version, we build up multiple layers of materials, which relate to one another interactively: the large white field of the rear projection surface is one layer, over which the smaller screen, as well as the performer’s physical body, act as different projection surfaces, each of which reflects the projected materials differently. This entire process is mediated through a complex, multilayered rhythmic logic, which plays out through the medium of the dancer and his performative body, interacting across multiple layers of media, musical material, and performative aspect, interacting from different temporal spaces with itself.

The effort to balance everything that comes to our way is not always a simple task, and sometimes we need reinforcements to persevere at zero.

The essential content of performance is students’ raised immediate reality, while in the learning process, thus creating a conditional subculture and at the same time – creating abstractions to the system, which themselves are putting the rules. These rules often can be broken. They may nominate the leader, the killer, who puts themselves and their behaviour under its consequences. Intimacy, sexuality and bestiality, which is hidden in every Human being behind social masks, but just breaks. But they sometimes deliberate or fall down naturally. We are becoming the viewers in the game, which rules we have set by ourselves.

The Rite of Spring
Choreography: Jiří Bartovanec
Music: Igor Stravinskij
Choreography assistant: Dora Sulženko Hoštová
Set design: Michal Horáček
Light design: Michal Horáček
Performed by: Sára Betušová, Kristýna Hebelková, Barbora Křížová, Jaroslav Lambor, Lucie Matoušková, Daniel Matušů, Patrik Miker, Jan Razima, Eva Rezová, Barbora Vaňková, Lenka Vořechovská, Tereza Weinlichová

Duration: 35 min

The Rite of Spring was a pilot project of Duncan Centre Conservatory. Thirteen students of third class of the Conservatory led by external choreographer Jiří Bartovanec worked on the project for the last half of year. The performance The Rite of Spring is a final product of this intensive cooperation.

The Rite of Spring opens the theme of ritual and self-sacrifice. But are we able to self-sacrifice in these shallow times? For whom, or what? What are the forms of self-sacrifice of the young generation? Maybe not to self-sacrifice for anything and anyone? What are our values, which will help us to decipher and evaluate the power of rituals and their ability to keep the circle of life in today’s atheistic of environment. Jiří looked together with the students for the answers to these questions in the principles of their lives, so one of the very important elements has become their own presence. They have worked with joy, with fear and with the devotion to one another or even the devotion to everything and everyone, like if the Rite of Spring has become the ritual of their own self and the time they live in.

We use to think about dance as a nonverbal way of communication, as a personal way of artistic expression. But what if we start to see it differently? As a closed system containing 31 movement only. Imagine the world when all of the people are moving in the same certain way. Will you be able to understand what they want to say/dance?

Jakub Muńko was born in Gorzówwlkp. (Poland) in 1989. He started his dance training with jazz and for 10 years he was a member of the dance group „Buziaki” with which he was traveling across Europe representing Poland. His first steps on the field of contemporary dance were made in Bulgaria (Frida Dance Co.) and he continued to develop his curiosity for dance at Skopje Dance Academy. Since 2015 he is dancer of Skopje Dance Theatre. Besides his work in Skopje he is cooperating with many dance schools in Poland with which he is organizing series of dance camps and workshops across the whole country.

He graduated with a bachelor degree in philosophy and he has a master degree in Bulgarian language and culture. Azbook’a is his second choreography made with and for Skopje Dance Theatre.
