Marina Bukvički’s artistic-theoretical research is conducted within the framework of contemporary performing arts, performance, and multimedia art. The author uses the biographical material of Mileva Marić and Albert Einstein as a starting point for her work, aiming to prove that using different multimedia tools can create a stronger emotional experience for the viewer than using only theater or film narratives. The project’s idea was to find a method, the right mechanism for a classical school actor to take on a role based on biographical (documentary) material and implement it into multimedia content using performance, video art, movement, film, and theater, or their elements.
