Slovakia 2018

8 dancers from 8 different countries gathered in Bratislava, united only by their shared experience of studying David Zambrano’s Passing Through work intensively the year before. We quickly discovered we were able to live, work and create together by applying the same values used to create instant compositions to our collective organizing. After a 2 week residency at Nova Cvernovka, we performed two versions of our work. First, at Štúdio 12 in Bratislava with experimental electronic music group Zoo & Aquarium, and then at T3, a reclaimed tram, turned-music-venue with percussionist Ivo Palenčár. We developed structures and scores to expand beyond Passing Through and at the end of the residency a core group of members committed to meeting again, as ootherside collective.
