Site de l'artiste

Inspired by Homer’s Odyssey, Aughterlony, Hrašćanec and Bozič take on the theme of estrangement and confront us with the dystopia of co-existence in a fascinating, dark landscape of marine images and mystical figures. Ironically, this epic poem of the sea and maritime adventures has now turned into a story of loneliness, which can be read both as a personal story within an infinite universe and as a parable of a new Europe. The repetition of mysterious voyages and the inevitability of desperate shipwrecks are tendered as proof that we are essentially alone, and are always perceived as strangers on new shores.

Working in the fields of dance and performance, Simone Aughterlony is an independent artist. She conceives and produces choreographic works in collaboration with various artists. Her works playfully deal with representation and its saturation, infiltrating and embracing the phenomenology of ignorance and the absurd. In 2015, she won the prize for Outstanding Performer (Swiss Dance Prize).

Petra Hrašćanec is active as a dancer, choreographer and teacher. Her interest and training focus on contemporary dance, while her works are characterized by the specific use of a multitude of different media to study the body and corporality.

As a Croatian director and playwright, Saša Božic is primarily interested in broadening the field of the performing arts, working on the dividing line between theatre, dance and performance, examining the porosity of their frameworks and the position of the performer in the different modes of representation.
