CHOREOGRAPHIC FANTASY No. 3 is the latest work in the series of the award-winning works (the Croatian Association of Dramatic Artists’ award for the outstanding choreographic achievement and the Croatian Dance Artists Association for the best choreography) that are considering the choreographic as an intuitive and a structural practice that is evoking trust in the very essence of the dance medium, exposing its fragility and enhancing its core. Dance as an affirmative production of memory is enabling understanding of the form as an articulation of aesthetic ideas and their attainments, their transformations and recontextualisations.

This new work, created under the working title Open Processes, considers a dance performance in a wider artistic perspective. It subscribes itself as committed to dance as a process, re-establishing the tenets of historical modernism as the very aim of a dance work. By meticulous research of individual layers of the emerging dance, Choreographic Fantasy No. 3 offers an in-depth analysis of choreographic practice opening up new approaches to its continuous research.

This performance cycle will be accompanied by a discursive and talk program that will consider diverse layers of explorations, choreographic and theoretical work, by opening new optics in this ongoing choreographic research. New book titled Choreographic Journal: seeing / vidjeti published recently in 2018, will also be presented by its authors and guests. 

Talks are with free entrance and the tickets for performances are available at the box office and can be reserved online here.
