A new project in development! Performers of all forms and kinds kindly invited to the workshop! Let's get to know each other and let's do *something* together in the near future! You can find all the information about the workshop in English by clicking here. I will share more information about the actual project on the workshop. Hope to see you there!
I am really happy and honoured to be the recipient of the Ksenija Hribar Award for the promising choreographer at the Biennial of Slovenian Contemporary Dance Art Festival Gibanica (aka moving cake). The festival offers a selection of the best contemporary dance production by domestic producers and is considered the most significant contemporary dance platform in Slovenia. You can find complete Award Committee argumentations here.
A couple of days ago Mladina, a popular Slovene weekly magazine published my portrait. It is available only in Slovene and the full article can only be accessed by paying a subscription, but nevertheless - here is a screenshot of it, linking to the site:
We had a blast in Maribor and the piece now travels abroad for the first time - you can catch me in Kule, Berlin on the 7th of November! Thinging also got the first review published in Dnevnik newspaper. Pia Brezavsček, a critic and a theatrologis, wrote (among other things):
“[When Jan] opens the curtains he also opens our heads to the wide object universe and makes us feel like small and insignificant things. In ecosystems, we humans are only one component of many, if we are present at all.
We can only hope that another talented creator who knows how to think choreography wider than the formula dance equals (human) movement won’t be forced to work only abroad.”
Last week we had a productive round of rehearsals, where we adapted the performance Variations on Slowness: TIME OUT (premiered in Ljubljana, December 2015) into an unplugged version, ready to be presented in Skopje, Macedonia. Don't miss us on April 26th in Kino Kultura!
