work in progress presentation that will be followed by a feedback session and conversation with the author(s)

Within the Creative Europe project Life Long Burning and in the frame of the residency exchange (Dance Hub) between Workshop Foundation (Budapest) and Nomad Dance Academy Slovenija in collaboration with Kino Šiška, dancer and choreographer Katalin Bitó and her collaborators Dorottya Szonja Koltay and Kurszán Koltay will be developing the performance I’m telling with you. They will work intensively in the dance studio Moj korak and Kino Šiška between August, 18. and 23. and conclude their residency with work in progress presentation that they would like to share with the audience.

The authors stated about their performance: »Past and present, confrontation between the inner world of imagination and the reality of the outside world.
How does a little girl interpret the world around her by personalized beings, objects and fictional creatures? What do these beings become over the years, how do they become part of the adult identity? The movement of the performer, her presence, the old home videos and the music build a world together in which the different layers of past and present, the imaginary world and the reality of the outside world become visible.«
