I – a Doll



Performance I – a Doll

17th September  at 7 p.m.

Students’ Cultural Centre – Big stage


The artistic project I – a Doll is a doctoral artistic thesis of Marina Bukvički, made at the Belgrade Dance Institute within her doctoral studies in the Artistic Dance and Performance department.

This project pays homage to our prominent scientist Mileva Marić Einstein, dealing with her life from a completely different point of view. It is designed to be performed as a multimedia communication (audio, video, film and performance), so that it consists of two parts being performed synchronously (a film of 90 minutes and a performance in which the artist makes visual recordings on painting canvases set in the room). This is not only a story about Mileva Marić who was a woman unfairly left hidden behind both her husband and the society she lived in, but it is also a story about all women having gone through a destiny similar to hers or who are currently living it.

I – a doll is a story about love and betrayal, about what we are able to sacrifice just to be accepted. Moreover, she is raising the question which was also the motive for making this project, asking: “How much does love cost?”
