FRIDAY 7TH JUNE
Spazio Rado - Aukio
Spazio Rado - Aukio reflects on the concept of home through different perspectives. An inner space, that allows freedom and choice for personal truth, or on the other hand a space of built security and attachment. A place where our wild nature uncovers its needs, calling for depth, listening and vulnerability. A bright light that emerges from the thick and dark, an open space in the dense woods. Working in a zone of transition, where imagination and reality blend, the performers create an intimate landscape of sound, movement and light.
DANCE & CHOREOGRAHY
SATURDAY 8TH JUNE
We view violence not necessarily as a conscious destructive action but rather a side effect of deterritorialization. The violation of intimacy.
Smell.Me.Ordinary.Piece questions societies view on instinctive desire and It's fear of sharing territory.
It is reflecting on the stage leading up to the physical violation, where violence is still seductive and dangerous at the same time.

SUNDAY 9TH JUNE
On The Art Of Murmuration
ON THE ART OF MURMURATION is inspired by birds behavioral phenomena called murmuration, exhibited when hundreds of starlings, fly together in the sky. It is presumed, it is a way of birds to protect themselves from predators, who get frightened by an ever-changing shape of the block and its unexpected way of moving. Annika and Justyna recreate this phenomenon by working with 'invisible dancers’ and by following the research of Craig Reynolds, who in 1986 developed Boids Algorithm. An artificial life program which simulated swarms behavior, used, among others, by Disney to animate ants. The complexity of the performance arose from 3 simple rules applied to every individual involved in the group, which are: separation, alignment, and cohesion.

SISTERS - Harvesting Insects
Two likeminded runaways find each other in a contemplation of fragile joy, forces tear them apart as they find back together but lastly, the inner demons of the past rip them apart.
SISTERS is a dance film in the widest sense. Shot in a cinema verité style, the film language is meandering between art, dance and narrative.
