Plac / Cai shichang
Choreographed by internationally renowned Chinese artist Wen Hui and performed by Zagreb Dance Company, the performance PLAC (Croatian word for “green market”) revives life stories from traditional street markets, both in Zagreb and Beijing, where women play a significant role.
PLAC is about food, clothing, household goods, and money. Plac is also about energy and noise (or the lack of them), quarrels unrelated to business, transactions with the local, anti-mall style, and timing and rhythmic interpersonal actions/connections. It is also about an anxious sentiment about the past and the future: the sentiment about women’s voicelessness in all sectors of life.
Choreography: Wen Hui
