“To confront a person with his shadow is to show him his own light.”
Carl Gustav Jung

Now you can sneak-peak our latest project which is a result of international cooperation of artists from Madrid, Zagreb, Belgrade and Ljubljana. Expressive dance story is being told through a video with a famous gipsy traditional song “Ederlezi” as a background music, for this occasion and for the first time performed in flamenco style. We used minimalistic choreography and given scene conditions as our advantage, focusing on rythm, remarkable shots and combining static and mobile camera.

PLOT SUMMARY

Confrontation is a performance inspired by Carl Gustav Jung’s psychology stressing the importance of confronting one’s own shadow, of bringing darkness to the light of consciousness.
Our psyche is split between the conscious and the unconscious at the center of which lies the shadow, all this which we fail to grasp or which we repress. In “Confrontation”, the author ventures into her dreams and confronts unpleasant and repressed memories from her childhood in an attempt to uncover parts of her shadow. She aims to achieve an inner balance by bringing into harmony the conscious and the unconscious parts of her psyche.
