I am...(Ja sam...)
This piece came as a crown of one year project called "You are..."/"Ti si...", in which I was performing every Wednesday for one stranger in one of the unexplored spaces of cultural centre DKSG. I was performing a solo dance improvisation, in which I was using as a beginning inspiration impulses, sensations, information, which I would receive from my unknown spectator. After 26 single performances, which were all completely different, I have made a piece based on these experiences. This piece was for all of my previous spectators to see together. Connected in time and all related to my performance, they have finally met physically. They were all witnessing a story of my life in a form of a peep-show, seeing each other faces across a stage.
"I am..." is a piece about me, but actually this piece is just another way to talk about you.
After the premiere, this piece opened and was shown to other spectators.
