PSR Zašto ne (?) / Why Not (?)
Zašto ne (?) / WHY NOT (?)
Ivana Kalc & Igor Koruga
Project “Why not (?)” investigates the embodiment and definition of today's (hopeless, isolated, scared, over-identified) body of the individual and the affective space of care between (at least) two people/entities, as a practice that can be further developed with the collective (audience).
In such a framework, we specifically investigated the technique of unison, i.e. "sameness" as a performing means of dance and as a cultural-artistic practice that carries with it an important historical framework of application: from the multi-purpose aesthetic-poetic application in artistic works of different epochs in the history of dance development (in the 20th century) to a targeted ideological and technological tool for shaping the social body of various social orders (communism, fascism, capitalism, etc.).
The goal of researching unison in the choreographic sense was to study the space for creating glitches through which differences on the affective, cognitive, physical level and time are articulated, in the physical sense, so multiple identity transformations as spaces of different social and physical powers and abilities manifest themselves, and thus become a basis for political, engaged and critical association and co-existence today.
