Premiere: Healers, in coproduction with Public in Private

We are happy to finally announce the premiere of our new performance Healers, which was created in coproduction with our partners – Berlin based company Public in Private and choreographed by Jasna Layes Vinovrški. Healers was originally supposed to be premiered last year in Berlin, but due to corona crisis, it was postponed several times. So, now the premiere will finally happen – on July, 1st 2021 at 8PM in Zagreb Dance Center, as a part of Perforacije festival.

HEALERS is a co-production between Public in Private company from Berlin and Studio contemporary dance company from Zagreb. Initially two different “Healers” teams from Berlin and from Zagreb had to work together hand in hand on stage. Due to the corona crisis, the collaboration couldn’t take place as planned and the two teams will perform for now separately. However the work has been created and developed with both teams equally. Also the first draft of this work was made in close collaboration with Darko Dragičević, during the event series Flutgraben performances #1 in 2019.

Artistic team of Healers has the task of disovering and eliminating situations, unsolved problems, emotional and energetic stagnations which could have accumulated in the walls of the space in which the performance is happening. In this case, the space of Zagreb Dance Center is carefully examined: what is its history and how is it handling its current function as a dance theatre?

STUDIO YOUTH 2.0/DANCE SONGS – presentation of dance videos

Studio Contemporary Dance Company presents


short dance videos created as a result of an online creative process Studio Youth 2.0

The main idea behind this project was to investigate different ways in which a poetic text can corelate with the body or dance performance. How can poetry be made from the physicality of the dancer and vice versa? The investigative approach was guided by the idea of silencing the rythm. Each member of Studio Youth 2.0 entered the creative process by bringing a poetic text by her own choice, which served as a basis for research. With the support of mentors – members of Studio, young dancers used words, thoughts, lyrics, figures, rythm and melody of the chosen poetic text, and approached the material through specific praxis, thus creating a unique dance vocabulary while, at the same time, not neglecting poeticity of the movement.

In the period from June, 29th till July 3rd, 2021 every day we will present one video, made in cooperation between each dancer, mentor and video maker Matija Kralj.

Videos will be presented on Studio’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
