The Together project co-produced by 21:21 Arts Organisation and Pan-Adria Network as choreographed by Petra Hrašćanec in collaboration with six young dancers was performed last night, 8 August at Lazareti as part of the 72nd Dubrovnik Summer Festival.
A play which examines what togetherness means on stage, or the way in which we build and share something amongst many, Together was performed by dancers Viktorija Bubalo, Ema Crnić, Lara Frgačić, Tessa Ljubić, Ariana Prpić and Una Štalcar Furač who are the co-authors of the choreography alongside Petra Hrašćanec. The forty-minute performance the audience greeted with long applause which called the dancers to bow three times.
The dance production Together was premiered in October last year at the Zagreb Dance Center and not too long after that at the international festival of modern dance Visavì in the Italian Gorizia. The critics praised it as a “rare experience of magic on stage” and said that Petra Hrašćanec “with this work delved into authentic depths of corporeality and showed an impressive maturity” (Maja Đurinović writing for Dance Scene). The rest of the creative team are Alen and Nenad Sinkauz who did the music, Zdravka Ivandija Kirigin set and costume design, and Marino Frankola lighting design.
