Natalija Vladisavljević & Collaborators

Dance in the 21st Century

NO LIMITS Festival | HAU Hebbel am Ufer (HAU1)

Production Details / Press Releases

Natalija Vladisavljević is a choreographer, author and dancer. She has worked in the theatre and dance collective Per.Art in Novi Sad, Serbia, for almost 20 years. About “Dance in the 21th Century”, she writes: “When Saša Asentic asked me what I would call my new performance, I said: ‘Dance in the 21st Century’. To cut a long story short: We live in the 21st century, and that is exactly when we will have our performance. A century is one hundred years old. I have written many scores. We will gradually work out one score after another. But everyone can be independent, meaning, they can work without me. And sometimes I will also give dance instructions. There is dance improvisation and music improvisation. Improvisation is also about us, about our attitude towards the dancers. What we do for improvisation is body language with increased teamwork. I am interested in everything that has to do with dance, both classical and contemporary dance. There is contemporary dance without music, and there is contemporary dance without dance. We will put it all together as directors.”
