The authors selected for the Gibanica 2023 competition programme will discuss the construction of language, methodologies and strategies for performances. Each of the authors is developing their own specific dance vocabulary on the one hand, and the “rules” of arranging on the other, so we will try to determine together how certain contents, topics, methods and models influence their decisions, both in the role of dancers and choreographers. This year’s selection is particularly marked by this “dual role” of dance creators who gained knowledge and experience in different parts of the world – and transformed them into their own artistic signature.
