The work Disappearance (Nestajanja)builds on the somatic experience of the performers, as well as the spectators. We are interested individually and personally which surfaces from the general and the universal. We move from one, the first cell out of which we are born, both as individuals and as a species, and travelling into the depths of different structures and processes which make us what we are, we create dance.

For the last decade, the author of this concept, Zrinka Šimičić Mihanović, has been studying and examining somatic movement, primarily using the Body-Mind Centering® approach, but also through other somatic approaches and practices.  Until now her artistic work has been inspired by the somatic experience, but in Nestajanja for the first time it has simultaneously become the starting point, the method and in a certain way the theme of her work.

The Project is a coproduction of Multimedia hut and Zrinka Šimičić Mihanović. Supported by the City of Zagreb and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia.
Multimedia hut is supported by the Kultura Nova Foundation.
