Their main subject is the ongoing authoritarian political picture in Macedonia and the individual’s position in it. Read More

We are questioning it from different perspectives as also we share different professional backgrounds. From the historical perspective one could claim that contemporary dance has survived many changes and it evolved to the point where it is almost only a mental activity and even completely conceptual.

We believe that in order to develop the discourse about disability arts it is important to enable disabled artists themselves to reflect and talk about their own work and actively participate with their equally important competences in the further development of inclusion in arts and culture.
