REFLECTION – multimedia contemporary dance performance

Premiere: January 21st 2017, Croatian National Theatre House, Zadar


“In the most painful, dreadful and darkest reflection of the Self – one finds himself/herself”

Like “SHADOW”, the contemporary dance and butoh performance in which Marija Šćekić and Tadashi Endo in a unique and original manner performed the harmony of in-between two different worlds (Croatian Dramatic Artists Award, 2006), the performance ODRAZ/REFLECTION shows what Lucija Mikas (contemporary dancer) and Elvis Hodžić (mehatronic technician and B-Boy) are in their movement essence, whether they liked it or not. The performance is also an autobiographical statement of the author about the 21st century pasia of those who decide to continue walking with heavy cross on their back while trying to remain Humans, not beasts or machines.

The strict, matematically precised choreography explores the movement essence, the space between learned (academic) and natural (organic) human movement through which two artists have communicated for years, but in fact never  really understood each other and neither their movement language. With the open-form choreographic tools and sharp artistic eye, Marija Šćekić infiltrates/penetrates the deepest and most hidden psychosomatic aspects of her dancers, to extract their raw, animalistic, reflective subtle temblors of their bodies and turn them into harmonic movement sequences where both dancers are free to spaek, move and be who they really are.
