ABOUT PERFORMANCE

LARGE – public happening at the end of time
After years of existence in space and interspace and its reflexions, we are now in the moment in whitch a deadline is fast approaching. The end of time as we know it, is near. The end of art is inevitable.

The Studio Contemporary Dance Company, the oldest Croatian contemporary dance ensemble, soon celebrates the 50th anniversary of its continuous activity. What does half a century of existence mean to a collective, what is its current position and what fantasies open when we come to realize that even dance troupes are mortal?

The global crisis brings us back to the yesterday’s vision of the future that turned to be fatally wrong. read more...

Euro, The World Bank, rating agencies, safety regulations, internet networks….. it all proved so corrupt and it is decomposing right before our eyes looking worse than the worst case scenario. However, this is the unavoidable moment of SF, what we feared has eventually come upon us, but in the most unexpected way – what we could not even begin to imagine has become commonplace, usual and ordinary. What is the ethical aftermath of this decadent times? Are we even ready for the new era?

Our deadline is Now! Now means to intensify every experience. In the year of collapse only Now matters, it is the divide in which our futures, our intentions and our strategies are being questioned. Through LARGE, members of the Studio Contemporary Dance Company listen and invite you to the listening prophecies that are fulfilled, dystopia and utopia that are created and demolished before our eyes.

LARGE celebrates metamorphosis, the moment of emerging and vanishing, the show that is performed only once and only Now and that cannot be performed again.

LARGE is rock n roll !

LARGE is last judgment, the final gathering before the end, and the moment in which your life flashes before your eyes.

LARGE is the moment of the final confrontation, panic buying of Here and Now. Break with linear time might have a discouraging effect but it is the same time liberating – there is no specified order of events.

Events and meanings can be arranged as we please or we can leave them scattered in the complete chaos.

LARGE is an attempt of establishment of the new time format, time that can only be experienced end not defined. In this context , apocalyptical thought is the starting point, possible utopia on the stage, adventure and opportunity. Moving boundaries and frames of time is more fun than Disneyland.
