With the performance “me again- but not alone”, starts the program “Arts, Politics, Institutions and Body” as part of the PLATFORM(a) 2018 -Program for Contemporary Performing Arts, organised by Lokomotiva – Skopje.
“me again – but not alone”
20 years are gone. The encounter with the musicians Gebrüder Teichmann brought Gisela Müller back on stage. me again – but not alone is a try out performance and an attempt to create a space of resonance where movement and sound converge. A space of exchange and of dialogue where the movement (dance) embodies sound and the sound picks up movement (dance). An interaction of tables, the dance floor and the players which might even lead to a battle. Read More

The Conference Modelling Public Spaces in Culture is one of the activities of The Dissonant (Co)Spaces project, aiming to offer diverse thematic overview on “the public space” as a physical location that creates social ties and “the public sphere” as the collection of attributes contributing to the formation of public discourse.
At the conference, public spaces will be reviewed and discussed through two different aspects:
- Revisionism and production of the history of culture and institution. In this thematic focus we will mostly engage in the modernist heritage from former Yugoslavia, critically examining the term “dissonant heritage”, and its usage in the contemporary context of culture. Another focal point is the development history of the institution in former Yugoslavia.
- Organizational and institutional innovative approaches in governing and modelling institutions, or proposing new models of public spaces as new models of institutions. We will try to examine diverse approaches such as commons, participation and usership in modelling the new public spaces.
These thematic focuses will be developed in thematic modes of presentation, interviews, lectures, discussions etc.
Lokomotiva is co-curating part of the program of the 42 edition of International Theatre Festival with the selection of the performance “1 POOR and ONE 0”, produced by BADco, Zagreb, Croatia.
