Performance reveals dance as sensual, penetrating and avanturistic experience, which deals with identification of private (public and intimate) meanings. Through embodiment of archetypes, dancers address habits in body and mind in relation to habits in environment, sensing and experiencing. The performance reveals different aspects of feminine archetypes, specially those related to sexuality and inner confrontations in every women's life . There is this always conveniant, socially accepted face of elegant woman, always behaving properly in contrast to uncivilized and unpredictable passions going on inside.

Seeking deeper meaning in intense sexuality, crossed with diplomatic and balanced integrity.

Every woman is also facing periods in life, when acts of sabotage in various different ways appear, addressing issues of fear and low self-esteem that blocks their empowerment. May be sabotaging her inner drives and desires or sabotaging other while looking for more acceptance and attention for herself. A modern, contemporary women, facing her addictions.

A struggle with the absence of self-control.Specially those of negative attitudes and the kinds of thrills that bring on adrenaline rushes.

this viodeo was also screening in frame of DANCA EM FOCO in Rio de Janeiro - BRAZIL

24 May - 4 June 2016

Addiction of being in command, addiction of serving others, addiction of searching for perfection can lead her to sever victimized situations and experiences which at the end manifest in series of inappropriate actions and rebelious behaviours. Breaking the patterns and finally freed from her own misjudgements.Growing up, facing the stages from girlhood to womanhood is a path full of doubts and ambiguities. Seeking and judging. Society, people and specially herself. Crossing all this phases, a girl at the end of her Persefonian journey in the underworld confronts herself as a woman - fully embraced and accepting her fertilizing power.

She was seeking. Seeking for sacred within.

In the garden. In her interwoven arms. From impulses in her feet.

Despite of all punches, she kept on falling in love with life, with aliveness...

She sacrificed her youth, freedom and embraced the crying bird inside,

so she could hear the instructions from the shell of destiny.

The wind has come near to her and breathed her wisdom.

She exhaled her sadness and became friends with happiness inside

and she is carrying it carefully now.

She didn’t listen.

She accepted the storm.

She sighed and the droplet

slipped through a large leaf of life.

She got used to perceive everything

through the prism of embrace.

And the only thing she regretted was her uncertainty.

SEEKER - WEAVER.

GODDESS - LIONESS.

She smiled to her inner child.

She sabotaged sacred actions,

because she didn’t noticed his presence while playing...

She continued coughing in the bloody

seas - oceans of fate -

and she didn’t noticed that

the only thing keeping her from being alive is a song.

Una Numa

KONCERT skupine UNANUMA – RITMO DA PAZ (Ritem miru)

v sredo, 22. 6. 2016, ob 21.00, SNG NOVA GORICA

Ime glasbene skupine Unanuma v jeziku domorodnih južnoameriških Indijancev pomeni mir. Mir je neke vrste univerzalni jezik, njegov utrip je mogoče zaznati povsod. Glavni namen glasbene skupine je združevanje in spajanje ritmov brazilskega pragozda z ritmi sveta. Eksotična brazilsko-slovenska glasbena mešanica predstavlja temeljno sporočilo skupine: združitev, unija.

"Poje se s srcem!"

Na koncertu bo mogoče začutiti glasbo, ki izvira v tradicionalnih domorodnih, spiritualnih skupnostih. Starodavne teme, ki so se ustno prenašale iz roda v rod, še vedno odmevajo in nas spodbujajo, da presežemo svoje notranje in zunanje omejitve ter tako prepoznamo resnično svobodo. Ritem Unanume prenaša univerzalno energijo in moč združevanja ljudi ter krepi razumevanje različnosti etničnih skupin po svetu, od domorodnega ljudstva Brazilije do hindujcev in Afričanov.

Poslušati in slišati glasbo Unanume pomeni izkusiti nov pogled na naš izvor in našo resnično naravo ter na naš odnos do sebe, drugih ljudi, sveta in narave.

Del zaslužka bodo izvajalci namenili brazilskemu združenju, ki preučuje in širi znanje uporabe zdravilnih rastlin amazonskega gozda.​

JOURNEY TO PERSPEHONE

Persefona je pradavna predgrška boginja čistega, nedolžnega srca - predstavlja mistično svetlobo v človekovem središču, najsvetejše bistvo, do katerega pridemo skozi temo naše notranjosti, ki jo v mitu simbolično predstavlja potovanje v podzemlje. Stari Grki so v Elevzinskih misterijih ta središčni prostor imenovali »kraj dospetja« in hkrati »kraj vzpona«, kajti namen spusta v podzemlje je preporod na novo raven zavesti, novo razumevanje življenja in sebe.

Predstava »Potovanje k Persefoni« pripoveduje zgodbo ženske, ki se odpravi v podzemlje, da bi našla izgubljeno radost svojega srca…


Ne gre za klasičen pomen besede »predstava«, temveč za gledališki dogodek ustvarjen v sočutenju in sodelovanju z naravo, dogodek, ki nas odpira v globoko osebno izkušnjo stika s samo/samim seboj. Umetnost nam služi, kot je v časih svojih izvorov, za doživljanje rahločutnih in magičnih plasti življenja,

Predstavi »POTOVANJE K PERSEFONI« bosta 15. in 18. avgusta od 14.30 do 20. ure v slovenski Istri.

(natančna lokacija, do katere jo pol ure hoda, bo znana ob prijavi)

Ustvarjalke predstave:

Romana Ercegović, režiserka, avtorica dramskega teksta, izvajalka

Sandra Anais, koreografinja, plesalka in izvajalka

Kim Mirjam Seppala, izvajalka

Mateja Ribarič, izvajalka

Ustvarjalke smo se podale v odkrivanje in čutenje Lepote narave in človeka, v različnih odtenkih.

Kaj pomeni živeti? Živeti zares? Kaj pomeni ljubiti? Kaj pomeni zares ljubiti sebe?

Zares čutiti in živeti svobodo, radost, žalost… svojo avtentičnost? Zaobjeti vse v sebi in polno živeti?

Kako biti svoja in hkrati biti zlita z drugim? To so vprašanja, ki si jih zastavljamo skozi predstavo.

ZeroIdentity

ZEROIDENTITY

is an artistic project, a playground for various artistic expressions to coexist in same time and space. It is improvised exploration of connections and empty space at the same time. Inspired by Japanese concept Ma - understood as a gap between two women. A consciousness of a space and simultaneous awareness of form and non-form deriving from an intensification of vision taking place in their imagination.

Research of possible body contact and connections between two women.

Looking for empty spaces in between their relation.

Floating in poetic vocabulary and dancing the songs of paradise.

Bringing intimacy to the fore.

Embracing the sounds of birds, cats, horses and a car passing by.

Digesting Poetic Mysticism.

Looking for spaces, for liquidity, moment, improvisation, fall, waiting, silence.

Expression of inner impressions.

Ambiental flow.

Being between lightness and darkness.

How does sand change my dancing?

In a state of becoming an interactive installation with elements of VJ-ing, light design, dance jam session and a live concert.
