...let's stop for a moment and listen to the Song of the Setting Sun:
White fluffy feathers/rise/under the setting sun/along the endless edge of the world. /The white mountain, which lies far to the west,/rises immeasurably beautiful. /Her white-shining cascades of light/flow towards the earth.
In the middle of the earth I stand (1968), Mladinska knjiga, Ljubljana
The Open Dance Scene is a festival of contemporary dance art, where we seek intersections between younger and already established artists, between their conceptually and expressively diverse performances that convince, inspire and culturally enrich the audience. It is a dance platform for networking dance creativity, originality, boldness, and successful international integration. This year, the main focus is on young dance talents, on the young generation of dance makers who, despite their youth, impress with their creative and performative maturity.
Dance is the Hidden Language of the Soul.
