Common Ground / DANCE FLOOR 2022
SHADEseasons / Ana Dubljević, Kasia Kania, Marja Christians
We create utopian facts - a transcultural mass meets the birth of a peaceful coexistence.
With Common Ground we bring what we have in common onto our sports mat. We mix up old rules and create a new game. Between minimalist movements, dramatic poses, joyful mat sliding, a musical crossover of Western and Middle Eastern sounds, we search for our common dreams.
Will this common ground keep us together or will it separate us? Is it a game - a true utopia? Or just a faded memory of our childhood days?

DANCE FLOOR 2022:
Welcome to the capitalist ruins, dear tourists!
Bring some sun protection, cause we will sweat in the middle of the arena of a former socialist luxury hotel. Haludovo Palace Hotel and the dance floor have been waiting for you and us all. Let's come together next to the blue blue sea to listen to our glory holes accompanied by a feminist music album: 700WET risks juicy sounds to seduce our missing libido in pandemic and capitalist ruins.
Let's stay with the ruins, be wet and weary, silly and horny, angry and depressed. Now and then.
