Studio on Dance Week Festival: Ana Maletić’s 1966 performance ‘Magic’ revisited

Studio Contemporary Dance Company is reviving movements from Ana Maletić’s 1966 performance Magic which was also adapted for television. In her choreography, Maletić was exploring dance archetypes and religious and magical rituals. The performance consists of three ceremonial scenes: healing ceremony, transformation ceremony and rainmaking dance ritual.

Together with Alen and Nenad Sinkauz, Studio is reviving the company’s history and using Ana Maletić’s movements as an inspiration for exploring and creating new ones.

This improvisation based performance transpones the original movement and uses it as the foundation for making new kind of dance magic on stage.

The performance is going to take place in Zagreb Dance Center on Novemeber, 14th, 2020 at 8 PM, as a part of Dance Week Festival.
Entrance is FREE of charge!

Performed by: Ana Mrak, Ida Jolić, Ana Vnučec, Martina Tomić, Branko Banković
