The Intelligent Body


Intelligence is not only located in the brain but represents an inherent part of humans, including the body. For a moment, the short dance film opens up the thinking about a disciplined body as opposed to a dynamic one, as the author calls it. Therefore, the author decided to continue the research she started in 2012 with two renowned dancers in Slovenia and internationally: Mateja Rebolj and Sanja Neškovič Peršin, both soloists of the Ljubljana Opera and Ballet, as well as established dancers of contemporary dance, who have been performing from the 1980s onwards. Mateja Rebolj participated in the first structured performance in zero gravity Noordung 1995–2045. Sanja Nešković Peršin is also a choreographer. Between 2015 and 2020, she led the ballet ensemble of the Slovenian National Opera and Ballet Ljubljana.
