Vedrana Klepica (HR): KJU – end – EJ...

20.9. u 22:30, 21.9. u 21:30, 22.9. u 22:30, 23.9. u 23:00 @ Atrij &TD In the context where audience development has become cultural politics’ priority, our objective is a critical examination of the ‘expert and spectator’ hierarchy which is often implied within audience development, and in doing so the audience is put in the position of ‘those that need to be educated’. Our goal is to break free from the logic of that monologue and create space for reflection in an informal atmosphere by avoiding the Q&A format and setting up a discursive format of exchange of impressions the audience and artist experienced. Post-performance talks can be (and for many people they are) more than a process of remembering. They become an integral part of our experiences. We want to live through something but we also want to explore and expand the experience with the authors. The audience is the one playing the key role in examination of an artistic work and cocreates artistic experiences with new concepts and meanings. Post-performance talks from the field of reflection will expand toward talking about conditions of artistic production and presentation, sharing experiences of cultural politics and practices in Croatia and abroad, and toward discussing general state of culture in Croatia and specific state of cultural activity in Student Centre in...

Powered by the energy of the Sun, a solar panel supplies a platform of 4-channel sound pieces lasting from 490 to 570 seconds – the time needed for the sunlight to travel to our eye on Earth. Each piece is reproduced 8 minutes before every hour on the hour emphasizing and evoking the Earth’s motion around the Sun, its speed that determines and captures the rhythm of the sensorial spheres. We listen the time. The workshop We Cheer for the Sun is a part of the project Edukultura SC supported by the Croatian Ministry of Culture and the Culture Department of the City of...

Mara Mattuschka / Chris Haring (AT): Perfect Garden...

20. 9., 20:00 @ movie (80′), Kratke slike x apap 2020 @ MM centre A lyrical, joyful marriage between mind and body, dramaturgy and choreography, the real and the fantastic. Men and women dance and desire uncontrollably at Perfect Garden, which rather than a bar is an Utopian institution where hedonism is more of a reality than an ideology. Perfect Garden is a hypnotic art film in which dancer and choreographer Chris Haring joins forces with filmmaker and performance artist Mara Mattuschka. Their hedonistic and utopian world filled with beautiful idiots is portrayed with inventive stylization: original camera angles, jerky or slomo images and distorted voices. Perfect Garden is a fabulously hypnotic film, with a David Lynch-like atmosphere, utopian and realistic all at once. The screening is a part of Short Images, a project dedicated to experimental and independent cinema. Mara Mattuschka is an award-winning filmmaker, actress and visual artist of Bulgarian origin. She studied ethnology, linguistics, painting and animation film in Vienna. Mattuschka´s extensive work has been shown at numerous exhibitions and international festivals. Her main interest is in film, painting and theater. She works and lives in Vienna. Chris Haring is a dancer and choreographer. He the is founder and artistic director of the dance company Liquid Loft. Haring worked with international companies such as DV8 Physical Theatre, Nikolais/Luis Dance Cie, man act, Nigel Charnock, pilottanzt, Willi Dorner… One of the main influences for his performances, such as Fremdkörper, are science fiction films and the human body as a cybernetic landscape. Part od Austrian Artists´ Focus. Funded by apap- Performing Europe 2020 project ( audience-development lab), co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European...

M. Andrijašević, L. Bouharaoua, L. Grahek, S. Perić, A. Z. Stolica,...

20.9., 18:00 @ literary installations, opening, Student centre Student Center is one of the main points for students living in Zagreb. By providing several different important services, from students’ restaurant through cultural activities to agency for part-time work, SC is an inevitable benchmark of students everyday life. As a part of the SC dedicated to culture, &TD Theatre is the central point of Zagreb theatrical landscape. From the iconic seventies to the present, &TD Theatre served as a shelter for “other” and different theatre poetics, was a place of the experiment, a space for authors at the beginning of their careers. Besides hosting numerous directors, dramaturges and performers on its stages, &TD auditoriums also raised generations of spectators. Over the years, some of them became active actors of Zagreb’s cultural scene. By engaging six young authors, who came to Zagreb to study and spent part of their education in &TD, to write six site specific stories, this project wants to establish a connection between intimate relations that we all create with certain spaces, and their public disclosure. Dealing with their own or someone else’s experiences as spectators, chosen authors will create new narratives that will be placed in public spaces in &TD Theatre and around it rather than being published in a form of a book. Through this form of public intervention they will open a space for reflecting on the collective memory of &TD Theatre and map it from the usually neglected spectator’s perspective. This installations will also facilitate the manifestation of otherwise hidden knowledge and will exemplify multiple realities of the theatre audiences.   Authors: Marija Andrijašević was born in 1984 in Split. She graduated from comparative literature and ethnology and cultural anthropology at the Faculty of Humanities in Zagreb in 2015....
