Since 2003, the Slovenian contemporary dance platform Gibanica has biennially presented the Slovenian contemporary dance production selected for the festival each year by three selectors. This year, the selectors were Virve Sutinen, Andreja Rauch Podrzavnik and Blaž Lukan. It is a mixture of a national dance festival, in which the home audience is able to gain an insight into the quality of the biennial dance creativity, while the artist can reflect upon the quality of Slovenian dance creativity, and a platform in which the foreign festival guests are invited to reflect upon artistic pieces they might consider for their own artistic programmes.
AUDIENCE AWARDED ROSANA HRIBAR AND GREGOR LUŠTEK
After the last performance of this year’s Gibanica we awarded the best performance by the choice of the audience. After every performance audience graded the piece with numbers from 1 to 5. With the average grade 4,6 the best performance was DUET 012 by Rosana Hribar and Gregor Luštek, produced by Plesni Teater Ljubljana (Dance Theatre Ljubljana). DUET 012 is an emotional piece; after the intro dance film, Rosana and Gregor intertwine different dance techniques and present their artistic and intimate story through contemporary dance. The award was symbolic: gibanica (a dessert).
