20:00.."Pera Dobrinovic" Scene of Serbian National Theatre
Bogdanovski & Fico Ballet:
Yesterday night in Cankarjev Dom, the Goran Bogdanovski quartet broke through the cultural sound barrier
… Superimposing the most noble dance tradition and indicating a refined perception of existence, he created a multi-visual show, accompanied by spontaneous ovation. … Steps while heroically raising legs, swift coming to stands, victorious dance in a wild cacophony of sounds that recedes as a slender echo in the desert of universe. Finally only people, real beings remain in front of us to breathe their global dance promotion.
