Performance · 2021

Schelter is a new and unusual performance inspired by the rhythms of musical scores in which music and dance create speed, initiate body movement and flight and tell an epic saga about the history of Belgrade, a city torn between constant destruction and construction. Then we build a shelter from within whose task is to enable us to open up to the world despite its contradictions, to reach silence amidst the urban bustle and drama of life. During the process, we analyse the category of decay, dissolution of even those structures that we thought were eternal, moments during which we realise that only our body is our temple, the authors say.
