Rooms 43, 44, 45 & 46 | Marija Iva Gocic, Aleksa Bartol, Sara Pantovic & Nikola Knezevic | 4 the experience
Performance “4 the experience” consists of four parts that share subject matter and are taking place simultaneously. Played by a dozen people in four rooms, they are separate in style and separated by walls. Each performance is played continuously in a loop and an audience visits rooms one at the time. The most appropriate definition for this type of work would be an immersive dance installation. The most appropriate way to describe it in a nutshell: reflection on a feeling of incompleteness.
