Here and Now, EXTENDED
2022, durational performance(22.00pm - 05.42am)
Concept Sonja Pregrad; in collaboration with Neža Knez, Lea Anić, Ivna Franić
Spend a night in Fælleshuset - awake, dreaming - or with a lucid vision? Experience the passing of time in different shapes, speeds, and pictures within the performance.
Experience the community in the quiet and suspended time. A performance for the duration of a whole night. A film from the forest, a slow dance of wax and the body, a poem about the passing of time, a drag performance, a selection of sundowns and daybreaks, a playlist of the songs for the time in-between. An invitation to you, your friends, colleagues, strangers, to spend the night in a different state of mind. Go in and out. Be next to other people. See. Eat. Sleep. Soften. Sharpen your sensitivity.
with Tarnby festival (Copenhagen, Denmark)
Lea, Ivna, Neža and Sonja are a loose collective formed around this work: they work across different media and geographies, they’ve already collaborated on other projects, and are friends. Sonja has a dance background, with a focus on objecthood and sensuousness, and is involved in a number of self-organized platforms and events related to performing arts in Zagreb. Ivna is a writer, music and cultural critic, and DJ who has contributed to independent media and organized experimental music events across different venues in Zagreb and Copenhagen. Lea is a visual artist whose practice revolves around tangible manifestations of the invisible and everyday echoes of socio-political context, as well as art education and the methods of transferring knowledge. Neža’s interest lays in the (moving) picture and the space around it – combining them with objects and voice, she creates different environments of sensations.
