We are happy to announce the premiere of our new performance SPECTACLE, choreographed by Irma Omerzo, which is going to take place on October, 10th, 2020 at 5 PM on the high school yard Elipsa (ulica Vjekoslava Klaića 8, Zagreb). There will also be a second performance on the next day, October, 11th also at 5 PM in the same place.
New performance by Studio Contemporary Dance Company ’SPECTACLE’, choreographed by Irma Omerzo, questions the heritage of this eldest Croatian contemporary dance company. However, instead of a classic hommage performance, the author approaches Studio’s tradition by using it for questioning conditions, meanings and reasons of collectiveness in present time, on stage and outside of it. By generating dance vocabulary from selected photographies of dance performances produced by Studio, specific dance experience of performers and massive ‘spectacular’ choreographies, in this work Omerzo questions perspectives of unison movement and the possibilities of its deconstruction while, at the same time, searching for boundaries, frames and combinations of collectiveness. The title of the performance is at the same time a reference to the fascination by unison movement in mainstream culture, but also a reminder of the potential which surfaces as a consequence of its persistence. ’SPECTACLE’ in this sense denies traditional protocols of spectacularity which insists on uniformity, replacing it with emphasis on the potential of being together in a way that affirms also individuality in this collectiveness.
