Nukleon is a full length performance created by IMRC Collective in collaboration with Aleksandra Janeva Imfeld.

The choreographic elements created by dancers are the result of collective authorship and elaboration of a specific system of dance interactions created by each body and personal interest. In content, Nukleon is placed in a space where a birthday party takes place, and whose it is we can only sense. Abandoned party, empty DJ stand and forgotten clothing taken over by new performers become a place of dynamic collisions and emotional explosions.

The IMRC's Nukleon is a community whose stronghold is the magnetic and inextricable connection of its parts.


Inclusive Movement Research Collective – IMRC was founded in 2012, as educational and performance contemporary dance project dedicated entirely to the idea of inclusion. It aims to work on highest artistic and professional level. In four years of existence, it inspired many disabled and able bodied dance enthusiasts to start moving, bringing our workshops and performances to their local contexts. Through our performance work, we are bringing the idea of inclusion to dance and theatre audiences, and empowering our dancers to start their own creative projects. We are building a network inside Croatia, that can secure dissemination of this work. In collaboration with Croatian Dance Magazine Movements we published a special issue of magazine that is entirely devoted to inclusion, and in 2015. we started a small festival Inclusive Stages in collaboration with dance group Magija from Rijeka. IMRC performed in Zagreb, Rijeka, Karlovac, Dubrovnik and Athens as a part of Unlimited Access EU project. Our dancer Sladan Livnjak received Croatian Theater Association Award for his outstanding performance in 2016. IMRC is led by dance artist Iva Nerina Sibila and producer Amela Pasalic. It is a part of Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance.
