The dance performance "Up and Up", by the choreographic idea of Ferenc Fehér, will be performed by the Zagreb Dance Ensemble through the Croatian Dance Network this Sunday, July 19 at 9.30 pm in Gradac Park.
With its latest production Up and Up, Zagreb Dance Company presents its rejuvenated, all-female team. Up and Up is a piece about a joint journey of six dancers, about a state of heightened emotions, about excitement and thrill of being part of a community. In their joint rituals, they discover the responsibilities of the individual to the community and of the community to the individual. Their dynamic performance presents life connection between the six women, their joint journey and different stops on the way through their dance careers. Their Amazon freestyle moves describe solidarity, courage, resistance, community and individual and group responsibility. That extraordinary female team consists of Margareta Firinger, Andreja Jandrić, Sintija Kučić, Gendis Putri Kartini, Petra Valentić and Jovana Zelenović.
