Creative Crossroads Cycle One 2023–2024

The Temporary NDA Collective

The Temporary NDA Collective is a group of six established artists of different generations living in Slovenia and working as dancers and choreographers (DISCOllective, Dragana Alfirević, Dejan Srhoj, Jana Jevtović, Jan Rozman and Beno Novak) who share an interest in exploring movement and composition, and who believe in the fact that every dancer is also an author and not just a tool in the hands of a choreographer. They have come together with the intention of occasionally collaborating on performances and, through our work, giving visibility and importance to the dancer's practice, which for two decades has existed on an equal footing with meticulously conceived choreography in the contemporary dance centers of Europe; in Slovenia, this idea is still in its infancy. They have gathered around the notion that collective work is necessary, stemming from the closeness and support in the community, as well as from the differences between individuals. 

In 2022 the collective start to work with Deborah Hay, continuing in 2023 with a dance performance Inside the Outside, an open work that calls for continuous collective practice, for which the collective will in 2024 use the opportunity of LLB3 partners residencies, where hopefully getting the chance to share their work with the audience.
