PERFORMANCE TO TOUCH - performative installation
Performance to be touched is the second episode of an ongoing project What comes into being? in which performers and visitors co-create the work in the real time and space of the performance. The authors, dance artist and choreographer Zrinka Šimičić Mihanović and visual artist Marina Bauer, have chosen the courtyard of the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb as the meeting place for this encounter. The place where the city and the forest touch each other, where the constructed meets the grown and the cultivated interweaves with the abandoned. Performance to be touched develops through six stations - 'Landing', 'Barefoot Islands', 'Running Guides', 'Choreography of Touch', 'Eyes Closed', and 'Moulding'. They all invite and foster movement and listening from outside in and from inside out. Touch and movement are approached as a foundation for learning about the world and establishing relationships.
