Time in a glance / Repertoir

The old Power Station – Elektro Ljubljana, 2023

Time in a glance is a longer project that  the author develops with invited artists in the form of various presentation formats. It premiered in 2022 in the form of a dance installation in collaboration with Bunker and in Zagreb in collaboration with the Multimedia Hut. In the same year, the author, together with Hana Vodeb, directed a visual-documentary installation in partnership with the DUM project space and a short dance film of the same name as part of the 4th evening of dance films at Slovenska Kinoteka 2023.

This time, Snježana Premuš is developing a performance in the form of three etudes with a study group of dancers of the younger generation who joined her in the dance-somatic laboratories between 2020 and 2023, focusing on the movement as a process that begins deep in the body beyond the intended body codes and form.

“Every new motif is formed through a process, through time, and thus observation becomes a process, too.”

Time in a glance – Premiere

The old Power Station – Elektro Ljubljana, 2022

Performance in the form of an installation is the second part of the opus Time in a glance, where we observe the complexity of interaction: the relationship to one’s own body, to space, to another, to a new body, and to the community. The author is interested in the perception of the viewer and performer. The viewer remains an active witness to the process of evolution, which begins deep within the body, beyond assumed body codes and forms. However, this new original “code” works through a “community/organism” that is constantly unfolding in space – thereby establishing an environment for the transformation of relations, into a new ecosystem. With the help of the score, the viewer is invited into the “group/organism” and can also co-create it, not just observe.

Time in a glance – research

2020/2021

A gesture (agreement) created in a collective space becomes meaningful only with the persistence and layering of the experience of those who perform it.
When a gesture becomes a consent, it challenges our understanding of collectivity: is a group of people really just a sum of individuals?
Because once I surrender to this gesture, I realize: it no longer belongs only to me! I begin to “walk on the edges of the common and the individual.”
Consent in its archaic form means agreeing in a “refined feeling”, opinion – as a refined feeling.
