CHOREOGRAPHIC FANTASY No. 3: performances & talks in March 2019

Premiered in May 2018, CHOREOGRAPHIC FANTASY No. 3 is the latest work in the series of the award-winning works that are considering the choreographic as an intuitive and a structural practice that is evoking trust in the very essence of the dance medium, exposing its fragility and enhancing its core. Dance as an affirmative production of memory is enabling understanding of the form as an articulation of aesthetic ideas and their attainments, their transformations and re-contextualisations.

Created under the working title Open Processes, this work considers a dance performance in a wider artistic perspective. It subscribes itself to dance as a process, re-establishing the tenets of historical modernism as the very aim of a dance work. By meticulously researching the individual layers of the emerging dance, CHOREOGRAPHIC FANTASY No. 3 offers an in-depth analysis of a choreographic practice, opening up new approaches to its continuous research.

Taking place on March 19-22 at the Zagreb Dance Center, this performance cycle will be accompanied by a discursive and talk program that aims to consider diverse layers of explorations, choreographic and theoretical work, by offering new optics in this ongoing choreographic research. A new book titled Choreographic Journal: seeing / vidjeti published in 2018, will also be presented by its authors and guests.
