We are happy to announce Zrinka Užbinecs and Kasia Kania as our next resident artists in 2023.
Zrinka Užbinec, in collaboration with Kasia Kania, will take time to research on choreographic clashes between cuteness and violence, thinking of choreography as an unstable state that can observe and produce ambiguous affections. By developing choreographies and practices that question violent acts in a performative way, this research will reflect discursively, critically and practically on (miss)representation of violent acts in performance and self-defence practices. With this research, Zrinka and Kasia will test choreographies that function as a counterpart to violence: a sensual activity, a caring force seizing agency and acute passivity – sometimes.
We wish Zrinka and Kasia a rich and inspiring time during their residency!
