Kino Šiška, upper foyer at 4 pm

European (and American) contemporary dance contexts do not have their autonomous spaces but were rather intermingled from the very beginning. European history of contemporary dance is at home in its inter-local and inter-cultural space. At the lecture “Slovene contemporary dance history in the perspective of the European artistic exchange: Selected stories (1918-1999)” I will focus on some relations between Slovenian and international dance contexts from the 1920s until the 1990s with the aid of photographic and video materials. I will focus on concrete short stories about female and male artists, performances or historical situations. I will take some photos and videos out of their micro-histories and bring them into the European context of contemporary dance to open up their proximities and distances.

Free Entry.

Duration: 60 min

Lecture will be in English
