Conversation with the authors of selected works
The 10th edition of Gibanica is an exceptional festival dance event, not only due to the extraordinary circumstances that will certainly have an impact on it this year, but also thanks to two decades of persistent efforts by the contemporary dance community, which has kept the festival alive all these years. In the meantime, the scene has matured and is no longer constituted by a single generation, but has become generationally stratified. In view of this, we have decided to split the conversation with the authors of the selected performances in two parts according to their generation – not to divide them further, but in order to highlight – in addition to conceptual and choreographic presentations of their artistic foundations – their specific production circumstances and positioning. Their views will hopefully help us to better reflect during this tenth edition of the national biennial on the vitality of Slovenian contemporary dance, both in terms of production and content.
