Performance entitled WIND IS PASSING TROUGH ME explores human behaviour in period in which the moves of individuals, media and tradition significantly influenced the lives of individuals. It poses a question of humanism in contemporary world of communications and modern systems trough simple visual symbolic and contemporary dance expression. Interaction of these materials formed new multimedial and multicultural picture in which movement speaks new language, until video projections speak the language of media at the same time.
Live physical expression,
sharp and suggestive movements inspired by heritage of Balkans, attractive
costumes, strong and suggestive music with special sound processing are
main characteristics of this show.
