CINEAST MEETS TROIS C-L
Friday 11 October (19.00)
A very special combination of a film screening and an original dance performance
The extraordinary documentary Yugoslavia, How Ideology Moved Our Collective Body by the Serbian director Marta Popivoda presents a reflection on the question of how ideology was acted out in public mass performances in Yugoslavia.
The screening will be accompanied by a specially created dance performance inspired by the film by the Luxembourgish dancer Piera Jovic, who worked on a short extract from the film. Her choreography echoes the strong emotions she felt during the final sequence of the film. She expresses through movements what people must have felt then, in those moments of hope. Finding inspiration in her own origins, she puts together historical film and dance, engaging a strong critical thinking process as well as artistic choices.
