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 discovering 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 choreographic endeavor, by combining fiction with historical-documentary elements, the ground for subtle humor is being created, that is an artistic gesture with which the desire for different visions and imaginations of the world we live in is called upon.
Jasna L. Vinovrški grew up in Zagreb, Croatia, but has lived and worked abroad since the disintegration of Yugoslavia. In the early 90s she studied in Essen, at the Folkwang University of the Arts, and worked as a dancer and performer with various European choreographers (Groupe Dunes, J. Schömer, C. Sagna, O. Duboc among others) after graduating. During that period she created her first shorter choreographies, including the solo work „Which Club?“, which has won several awards. After moving to Berlin in 2008 with her partner Clément Layes, she co-founded the company Public in Private where the two artists continue developing separate choreographic signatures while closely supporting each other artistically. In 2012, Jasna received her MA in Choreography at the Inter-U University Center for Dance (HZT) in Berlin. Her recent work „Staying Alive“ has been touring all over Europe and was also presented in New York, US, in 2017. www.jasnavinovrski.com
