Presentation of the Bojanka project: Lana Hosni

Event of the usual – presentation of research and coloring book for adults

As part of the artistic research The Event of the Usual, dance artist Lana Hosni invited the actors of the dance scene and all those interested to participate in conversations about assumptions, beliefs, prejudices, habits, unwritten rules, tendencies …….. that revolve in the space of dance and more or less obviously influence the way we experience it today. From November 2022 to April 2023, about 70 meetings and about 200 hours of conversations took place.

Through structured one-on-one conversation sessions, a kind of ‘update’ was made about where we are today in relation to previous beliefs, assumptions, prejudices, conditions that we encountered through the experience of education/action/consumption of (dance) art and in what way are still present/embodied in the ways we deal with the body, authorship, movement, pedagogical work, collaborative relationships, thinking about dance, criticism… today.

Within the presentation, the method of work and observations will be presented, and there will be time for conversation and questions, along with the presentation of the Bojanka coloring book for adults created during the research process.

Participants of this research are Anika Cetina, Antonia Dorbić, Danijela Renić i Kaja Renić, Dora Đurkesac, Ema Kani, Ivana Bojanić, Ivana Vojnić Vratarić, Josipa Bubaš, Nikolina Komljenović, Marko Gutić Mižimakov, Marta Banić, Matea Bilosnić, Mia Štark, Mia Zalukar, Sindri Uču, Tessa Ljubić, Zoe Pauška i Zrinka Užbinec. The Bojanka coloring book was bound and printed by Antonia Dorbić and Lana Hosni at the Obrt studio.

During the festival, you can get your copy of the coloring book at the Monoplay counter. The edition is limited!
