During this year’s edition of Eurokaz – The International Festival of New Theatre I had an opportunity to interview artistic director of CIE 111 Company, Aurelien Bory…

Dancer and choreographer Hiroaki Umeda had been treated here with special care… His dancing technique, space design and approach to technology have made it so… I found this video thanks to DBM Mediterranean Dance Network which posted Umeda’s new video ‘Adapting for distortion’ on their Facebook profile several hours ago.

Back to Queer Festival and an interesting performance by duo of dancers / choreographers Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud… an airing experience entitled ‘Les Sylphides‘.
Because this performance explores micro-passages of human existence in conditions that limit vital functions as breathing, the force that drives it is very similar to Raimund Hoghe’s dramaturgy, but it results with completely different end and, of course, completely different poetics.

This year’s edition of Queer Zagreb Festival was enriched for different concepts and poetics… the performative aspect of the programme re-marked the position of second and third generation in queer subculture, like Raimund Hoghe, then Ivo Dimcev, Alain Buffard, new forces as Dominic Johnson, Andre Masseno, Francois Haignaud & Cecilia Bangolea, etc.
In the year of 2009, I’m still enjoying watching video material of early artworkz by Pina Bausch. If there is a theater, besides Butoh, that yet makes me speechless, than we are talking on Bauch’s theatre…
