BELGRADE DANCE INSTITUTE ON AEROWAVES
Metronomy, the graduate performance of the Belgrade Dance Institute, choreographed by Tamara Gvozdenović, was selected among the twenty best productions from 16 countries within THE Twenty23 AEROWAVES. This is the first time that Serbia has not only passed the selection process, but also placed in the top twenty.
Aerowaves is a dance discovery center in Europe that identifies new trends in contemporary dance art and then promotes them worldwide. The network of partners consists of 33 countries, which enable young choreographers to present their contemporary expression to a new audience.
Aerowaves prides itself on its unique role as a link between choreographers, dance developers and dance enthusiasts across Europe.
On July 1st, the graduate performance of Metronomy, choreographed by Tamara Gvozdenović, premiered on the Raša Plaović stage of the National Theater in Belgrade.
Sonja Stojanović, Una Balaž and Angela Mihova performed in front of the committee and the audience, for whom this was the graduate performance, together with Doc. Katarina Bućić, and students of second year at the Institute Miona Petrović and Tijana Ostojić.
The original music for this production is signed by the French artist Kangding Ray, while the assistant choreographer is Ognjen Vučinić.
Discussing her production, the choreographer states: We build our common future by considering the contrasts: the construction against the deconstruction, the parallels, the crowd against the loneliness, the in-between, the negative space, the shadow, the transformation of the bodies , the change of the space, the change of the perception and the perspective. “To create, first we will destroy. Everything we have built, we will destroy. We will erase everything we believed in. We will forget all the faces we have seen. We will not start from scratch. We will keep the foundations. In pieces. We will collect. Some will remain. We will choose. Some will be forgotten. Lift up. Step off. Valorize. Destroy.
After studying visual arts in Neuchâtel, Tamara Gvozdenović enrolled the prestigious Trinity Laban Conservatory of Music and Dance in London, where as well our famous choreographer Aleksandar Ilić obtained his Master’s degree.
