Performed by six dancers: Filipa Bavčević, Lana Hosni, Irena Mikec, Sara Piljek, Katarina Rilović and Mia Zalukar, the dance piece titled Choreographic Phantasy No. 2 by choreographer Marjana Krajač deals with the form as a vibrant place, levels of shapes, levels of materiality of the form and its autonomy.
In the first instance this piece can be read as a choreography for the end of time; dense layers of the form and shape that are extracted in the performance open some sort of a time abyss where the dark compact performative tension defies only through breath. Unpredictable encounters in form, a range of different tensions and sound imperatives shape this performance as a glance to a yet unreached technological horizon.
In the second instance the work is a kind of homage to the album Electronics by Zeitkratzer and Carsten Nicolai. It gave the final touch to the choreographic structure and gave it the complementary sound component. In reviews described as a “floating merge of oscillators and sinusoidal generators that poses the question about existence of romance machine or even electronic idyll”, it created an important connecting piece in the sensible working process.
Choreographic Phantasy No. 2 is the second work in a series that has opened up a whole field of considerations of the choreography as a poetic, intuitive-political and structural practice.
Diving into the very essence of the choreographic expertise, focusing on what is primarily choreographic, what primarily belongs to dance, in relation with all other elements of the performance, the series of choreographic fantasies calls for trust and a conviction in the essence of the dance medium where it is most fragile, where it is beyond anything that inhabits it and does not originate from it.
