ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
The workshop is based on Bruno’s current choreographic interest. It comes from the performance DISCLOSURES that he created last year in NYC and is now creating a Croatian version. Disclosures is a intimate research on cultural ideas of nudity, sex and body. It is a personal exploration of intimate experiences closely related to one’s individuality and the social norms of one’s surroundings. What made us and marks our attitudes towards the world and our self? Which moments in our life were the turning points and how those moments changed us? Whether an extrovert or introvert, being exposed connotes meaning for everyone — about borders, privacy, shame, vulnerability, and social order. It can also serve as a powerful affirmation of self, an empowering mirror through which one might not only see oneself, but also more fully see others. The workshop combines different range of exercises, psychological portraits, personal stories and automatic speaking exercises and is a leaping off point for the two days.
