Mala Kline is an accomplished dance artist who gained her first experience already before she became of age. Of all the Slovenian choreographers and dancers, she is the one who would perhaps best reflect Žižek’s presumption that one is most inside of oneself by being most outside, given that by being divided between Ljubljana and the world, she practices this position with her “life and work” in a – as it sometimes seems – methodologically thorough and successful manner. At the moment, she is studying in Amsterdam, working in a post-graduate educational programme Das Arts.
Her choreographies in the past years touch upon the icons of popular culture and the Freudian field on the one hand, and dramaturgically tackle the poetics of nonsense, absurdism and semantic nets on the other in order to open the regions of meaning and sense that cannot be reached by the ordinary ways of denotation. Bliss springs out of some of the fundamental questions on art and the artist in a contemporary context, on the reasons for work and the purpose of art today. Basic, difficult and at the same time redemptive questions.
