Collective Presentations

Meeting with audience in different contexts and spaces. Collective presentations are unique projects in which we merge small format performances (mostly pieces form the Via Nova series) into more complex events made of three or more performances. With these concepts we strive to establish the maximum communication with the structure of the space, the concept of the event or the context of the story in which we enter (theatre, gallery, museum, symposium etc). Via MSU Zagreb program (pdf)
