On August 10th a contemporary dance performance ‘Sjedi 1’ (Sit down 1 – a term used in school when pupil doesn’t satisfy teachers question) was held in Providurs palace in the middle of Zadar. We bring you audio from the show and an interview with dancer Lada Petrovski.
‘When good is not good enough… The effort of perfectionist women is often not recognized enough… Love isn’t beloved enough… Saying only ‘I feel dizzy’ isn’t enough….
Educators are not in a bad enough situation…. When body is never slim enough…
American report says that Bosnia and Herzegovina still isn’t enough… Being on the title page is not enough… Croatian government has not sufficiently
supported projects…School has not sufficiently tutored the young on what that is…. Not cooked enough… No matter how hard he tried for her it was not enough…. Supporting our team is barely enough, isn’t it? … He is not smart enough to comprehend… Sometimes perfection is simply not enough… Altering only ours isn’t enough… Saying no, is not enough… Praying and waiting is not enough… Being aware is also not enough… Being natural is not good enough for the stage… In this collage we once again dig through that old dilemma about what is enough or is not enough for interacting with an audience and what old patterns we keep slipping upon while presenting ourselves / performers / authors to others. Concept of a solo act seemed perfect for this research. Vulnerability in disclosing of a performer as a common person, normal and with all his flaws certainly provides taste to a dish like this. It also reveals that ‘not enough’ is merely something our mind has created along with expectations that we bring into any play of life. We shall test our boundaries of –being not enough–, as we hope we may simply –be-‘ (Text from http://www.zadarsnova.hr/program.htm)
