"NITI" at the International Women's Biennale at Warehouse 26 – Old Port of Trieste

Friday, December 8, at 7:00 PM

The International Women's Biennale is pleased to present, as part of the IV edition of the International Women's Biennale with the theme "Breathing with the World" – at Warehouse 26 in the Old Port of Trieste – the exceptional dance performance "Niti," a generational encounter between two prominent authors, Senka Baruška and Jasna Čižmek Tarbuk. Both committed to promoting the advancement of contemporary dance in their respective contexts, the two choreographers, despite coming from different backgrounds in terms of training and aesthetics, share a profound exploration of movement and the meaning of gesture.

Senka Baruška presents a choreography that draws on fragments of her previous works, shaped for specific locations and set to traditional music from the Kvarner region, where the surrounding environment becomes an equal partner for dancers and music. On the other hand, Jasna Čižmek Tarbuk's choreography was born during a residency in Lovran, inspired by the relaxing movement of waves and the music of the handpan. Finally, the authors challenge conventions by exploring more energetic group dynamics based on animal movements, seeking to understand the nature of connections, the ease with which they can be interrupted, and the intrinsic dilemma between aggregation and separation.

We invite you to participate and let yourself be carried away by this extraordinary experience of movement and meaning. INFO: The event is open to everyone. The admission ticket includes the exhibition visit and participation in the "Niti" event.
