Gibanica at CD | Mala Kline: SONG

SONG by Mala Kline is based on the Song of Songs, one of the greatest mystical texts of the Western tradition, which is essentially an anthology of love songs that celebrate and sing the praises of love and symbolically praise it as the strongest link between beings and the fundamental reason for human existence. Like the Song of Songs, Mala Kline’s choreography is a subtle, minimalist and meditative approach to love that explores the magical potentials of language and the scope of relationships it can create. It explores how language as a medium – spoken or unspeakable words – can bring us into a relationship with the unnameable, the body, the space, the music and the audience. SONG is the first part of a trilogy that seeks to mobilize our understanding through our emotional and sensory sensitivity. “SONG is a love song we write with every utterance,” says the author, quoting the Song of Songs 1: 2: “Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth.” In the words of Nika Arhar, SONG hints at a shift to more intense contemplative depth.

Gibanica at CD | Leja Jurišić & Miklavž Komelj: It Is Impossible to Wait In Vain

A “twofold event” It Is Impossible to Wait In Vain is a co-authored project of two artists, a poet and a choreographer, which is their first collaboration. During their year-long joint work process, Komelj writes a verse drama and publishes a book of pictures, and Jurišić creates a theatre play. All three parts bear the same name, It Is Impossible to Wait In Vain. The event outlines, declares and performs close ties between distant worlds. Komelj’s passionate poetics and the penetration of the extremes of existence by Jurišić, with each other and in each other on the path of empathic endeavour. In doing so, Jurišić asks herself: “Who is really prepared to question the area of superiority?” The two artists met one evening on Metelkova. Jurišić dances, afterwards Komelj approached her, and the collaboration began. Everything is sublime. Everything is dedicated to the other. Inter-dedication. Softness. A stone as a fellow actor that symbolises otherness, immobility, perseverance, and encourages the desire to get closer and understand.


Leja Jurišić

is a dancer and choreographer working in the field of performative and political art. She has performed with her original artwork in various institutions across Europe, the USA and Mexico. She won numerous awards, including the Borštnik Award and the Ksenija Hribar Award for the performance Together (with Marko Mandić). She is considered an author who does not shy away from direct criticism of the social, economic, and political distortions of freedom, while perceiving the human body as a powerful emancipatory tool in creating the experience of rebellion. Her productions rely primarily on her body, which she understands as a political machine, while remaining open to exploring personal, intimate, and biopolitical context.


Miklavž Komelj

is a poet, writer and literary theorist who has published thirteen books so far, including Goreča knjiga (“Burning Book”), novel Skrij me, sneg (“Hide Me, Snow”), two books of short prose, two books entitled Ni mogoče čakati zaman (“It Is Impossible to Wait In Vain”; as part of a multimedia project with Leja Jurišić ), a scientific monograph on Slovene partisan art, and a collection of essays on poetry. In addition, he has published several other books and numerous scientific articles and essays on the theory and history of art and literature. Among others, he edited the collected poems of Jure Detela and published all previously unpublished records by Srečko Kosovel. He translates from various languages and has won several awards, including the Prešeren Fund Award, the Jenko Award, the Veronika Award and the Igor Zabel Working Grant. He lives and works in Ljubljana as a freelance writer.

Gibanica at CD | Jan Rozman: Thinging

In the performance Thinging, the author/performer confronts with the things around him and at the same time, with the feelings and ideas that these things trigger. The performing space becomes a place of contact between living and non-living matter, object and subject, (speculative) existence and non-existence, inactivity and action, saturation and emptiness, the everyday and the mysterious, poetic. The creative process is based on the performative research of materiality started by Jan Rozman during his Master Degree course at MA SODA at the Inter-University Centre for Dance in Berlin. The performance, which leans on the philosophy of speculative realism and object-oriented ontology, activates its choreographic force precisely through the performer’s relation to things on stage, challenging anthropocentric perceptions of reality by seeking alternative possibilities for coexistence in times of global ecological catastrophe and oversaturation with objects with objects in contemporary Western lifestyle.

 

Jan Rozman

works as a performer, choreographer, dancer and improviser between Ljubljana and Berlin. In his artistic practice, he deals with extended notion of bodies, material semiotics, textures, gaps, errors and confusions, ecology, imagination, (science) fiction and humour. His work is focused on the research and articulation of performative articulations for the post-Internet/Anthropocene era. He completed his studies at the department of contemporary dance of the Art Gymnasium in Ljubljana, studied choreography at the School for New Dance Development (AhK) and completed his Master’s degree in solo/dance/authorship at the Inter-University Center for Dance (UdK) Berlin. In 2019, he received the Ksenija Hribar Award for emerging choreographer. In the same year, he received a danceWEB scholarship at the ImpulsTanz festival in Vienna.

Fabula in Theory: Envisaging a Community of the Future?

This year’s theoretical centre of the festival will focus on two interconnected, but topically diametrically opposed events. The section Envisaging a Community of the Future? will discuss the challenges of future communities and building new social formations of a utopian or dystopian future and will feature a lecture by one of the most prominent contemporary Italian philosophers, Umberto Galimberti. Matejka Grgič will moderate the lecture in which he will explore possible current and future spaces that seem to be sliding back into elapsed ideas, into an area of political and social control, while baring features of a dystopian future.

Umberto Galimberti (1942) is a full professor at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, where he has been teaching since 1976. He studied philosophy, anthropology, and psychology first in Italy, then in Germany. He has authored a number of scientific and popular science books, translations, and technical publications for various Italian media. His work has been translated into several languages; the books The Disturbing Guest. Nihilism and Young People and The Myths of Our Time have been translated into Slovenian. Umberto Galimberti is one of the most prominent representatives of the school of philosophy that developed in the late 20th century so unhomogenously that it does not actually bear a common label. It is a train of thought closely relating to psychology and partly to anthropology and religiology. This philosophy is characteristic of the analytical psychology of C. G. Jung, antique philosophy (especially Plato), and fields of anthropology and religiology dealing with archaic religions and myths. Umberto Galimberti’s philosophy is based on the assumption that the philosopher does not live in a fortress of knowledge, rationality, and logic, but rather in the midst of a life of a community, that they are a person among people and their knowledge, rationality, and logic do not disable, but rather allow them to be confronted with the reality of their life. When contemplating the challenges of a modern society, Galimberti uses the appropriate methods of analysis and synthesis, but does not reject antique or even archaic forms of wisdom. His human is a whole, not just a cluster of organs or a contraposition of body and spirit getting a glimpse into new perspectives. Galimberti uses his works to discuss the phenomena in modern society that have lost all dimensions of the archaic narrative and have become self-explanative, dogmatic – the axioms of the 21st century.

Fabula in Theory: Disintegrated Countries, Dissolving Communities?

This year’s theoretical centre of the festival will focus on two interconnected, but topically diametrically opposed events. The starting point for the event Disintegrated Countries, Dissolving Communities? relates to the 30th anniversary of the disintegration of two federations that shaped the twentieth century’s political, social, and cultural histories: Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union. What awaited the countries after the dissolution? Did this community ever actually exist or has it always been nothing more than an ideological construct? How solid should a community be to survive? German philosopher, sociologist, and historian Karl Schlögel and Slovenian historian Jože Pirjevec will be seeking answers to these questions.

Jože Pirjevec, PhD (1940), lecturer on history in Slovenia and Italy, began his academic career by exploring the connections between the Italian Risorgimento and South Slavs during the March Revolution; in 1971, he began teaching the History of Eastern Europe at the Faculty of Political Science in Pisa, later continuing his lecturing in Trieste and Padova. He received his doctorate from the University in Ljubljana with a dissertation on Niccolo Tommaseo. Since 1980, he has concentrated his research on the history of Yugoslavia, the Yugoslav war, as well as the history of Slovenians in Italy. His extensive bibliography spans over 200 units in different languages. He was also president of the Slovene National and Study Library in Trieste for seventeen years, as well as the president of the board of the Slovene Civic Theatre in Trieste between 1987 and 1991, and has been a full member of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts since 2009.

Karl Schlögel, PhD (1948), German historian, studied philosophy, sociology, Eastern European history, and Slavic languages in Berlin, Moscow, and Leningrad. He taught the History of Eastern Europe at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder). He studies social relations in modern-day Russia, the history of Stalinism, the Russian diaspora, and dissident movements. He has received numerous accolades for his work (numerous scientific publications and monographs), including the Leipzig Book Award for European Understanding (2006) and the Prize of the Historisches Kolleg (2016).

Elvis Stork, a Genius Klutz is a humorous, amusing and dynamic odyssey about the life of an average teenager whose relatively uncomplicated and routinely dull life is turned upside down by the news of his parents’ divorce. As if this wasn't enough, he has to share a home with women he finds all but unbearable, and his mom makes an announcement that she's pregnant. After an unexpected family tsunami, Elvis is forced to play the part of a family therapist and, while solving everyone else’s problems, is swamped with troubles of his own.

Nana’s Songs

Theatre and dance performance
For children aged over 5

The project is based on Nanine pesmi, a music picture book comprising Frane Milčinski – Ježek’s lesser-known poetry performed by Nana Milčinski. The subject of the seventeen poems is the poet’s granddaughter, Nana, on whose initiative the poems were set to music and included in the collection Preprosta ljubezen (Simple Love).

Aimed at our youngest audiences, the tenderly autobiographical Nana’s Songs (Nanine pesmi) blends music, dance, theatre and video to tell an enchanting story about a little girl discovering the worlds of drawing, play and fantasy in the company of her doting grandfather. The meeting of the grandfather (Frane Milčinski - Ježek), granddaughter (Nana Milčinski) and their art comes to life as an encounter between two generations in a special place – the peace that humans get to experience only at the end or the beginning of their lives.
