“Intimacy cannot actually be rushed. It is a process, not an event. Intimacy cannot be steered. Just like a feeling, it can not be kept or repeated at will. Intimacy is observed, not created.” 

Dance performance YOU is inspired by the poetry of Enes Kišević (Sun, Wind and You). This impressive dance duet, incorporating also  video, evolves into an intimate dance story that speaks about intimacy, life and its cycles. 
The poem is recited by actor Robert Kurbaša who is also responsible for the incorporation of the video component as a way of bringing poetry into everyday life.

Saturday 14.02.2015. Workshop with Maja Drobac: ''Contemporary dance with elements of BHARATANATYAMA’’


Venue: tbc

Fee: 80,00 kn

‘’Contemporary dance with the elements of Bharatanatyam’’ is a workshop intended for those who want to try both physical embodiment of contemporary western dance and classical Indian dance. The base and foundation of this workshop will be contemporary dance, but with elements of Bharatanatyam (classical Indian dance) which Maja Drobac has been studying for ten years in India. The idea is to build awareness of safe dance practice and body awareness that will support as a basis for advancement of new dance practices enriched with rhythms, hand gestures and an entirely different set-up of the body.

Bharatanatyam is the most popular of the Indian classical dance forms in South India. Bharatanatyam has three main aspects namely Nritta, Nritya, and Natya; where Nritta is the demonstration of rhythm through graceful body movements, Nritya can be described as an explanatory dance as it forms a combination of rhythm and expression depicting a story through facial expressions & body movements and it transmits poetic meaning with the help of rhythmical expression and gestures of the body, while Natya is the dramatic element of classical Indian dance where is emphasized only expression of the dancers.

KDF005 is supported by: Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, City of Karlovac,  Karlovac County, Karlovac Tourist board.
