PREMIERE Co-production "Choreoeroticon" by Ana Dubljević, Darja Janošević, Marko Milić
The dance most common in contemporary pop culture stresses the eroticism of the body, offers it as an imperative companion of pleasure and of (self)worth. In fertility rites the dance was part of ceremonial and spiritual practices, where the sexual act or reproductive processes were (symbolically) represented. As well in fertility rites and in pop culture such representation in this specific context is adopted and encouraged by the group, whereas in ordinary circumstances it remains in the private.
Choreoeroticon tackles the question: How could the contemporary need for eroticism be interpreted through a dancing performance and how could it be used for the purpose of improving the society and not solely for its momentary satisfaction?
