Roads / Lazar Čolović & Tjaša Korenjak

Duration: 1 h

The concept of "Roads" was born as an idea to combine music and dance with non-verbal communication.

The dance is set in an improvisational form; this one finds its central inspiration in the composition "Popoklop" (original music by Lazar Čolović), based on a flexible form of minimalist themes with various rhythmic structures. The project moves between spontaneous improvisation and modern literature for percussion instrument with visual accompaniment as the film is played on the screen. The project was first performed in Murska Sobota in May 2022, and preparations are underway for the Maribor concert a derivative of Roads 02, which delves even deeper into the exploration of communication, this time also through spoken language, Norwegian.

It is a unique crossover project, so it includes composed music, improvisation, dance,
visual art and spoken word. Nevertheless, it is all based on spontaneity, which the artists want to feel together with the audience. It is also challenged by questions about communication itself - whether is an accurate understanding of the material even necessary for it?
