Datum izvedbe: 27.02.2014. u Plesnom centru Tala
Koprodukcija: Linkta, NDA, LLB, Stanica za savremeni ples i TALA
Projekt je raliziran kroz programsku liniju LLB EU projekt pod nazivom Dance works.
LLB program podržava i potiče umjetnike iz svih dijelova Europe, iz vrlo različitih sredina, koji će formirati budućnost suvremenih izvedbenih umjetnosti u Europi. Identifikacija umjetnika sa svojim potencijalom i dobivanje podrške kroz koprodukcije su izvrsne umjetničke prakse. To je važan alat za razvijanje dijaloga i razmjene među umjetnicima i plesnim organizacijama na europskoj razini.
Institut za katastrofu i kaos je ženski kolektiv koji djeluje u polju suvremenih izvedbenih umjetnosti i teorije, osnovan 2011. u Zagrebu. U središtu našeg rada je stvarnost iskustva u recentnoj neo-liberalnoj ekonomiji, pozicija umjetnosti unutar takvog sustava, s fokusom na ženski rad. Format naših radova odražava tu stvarnost.

Nevidljivi, kao interdisciplinarno izvedbeno istraživanje ima dva ishodišta: studiju Gregoria Sholettea DARK MATTER: Activist Art and the Counter-Public Sphere i knjigu Kaliban i vještica Silvie Federici. Nevidljivi istražuju su-odnos raznih izvedbenih izričaja, uključujući teoriju izvedbe i vizualne umjetnosti. Namjera nam je stvoriti kolektivni rad posvećen procesu uzajamnog razumijevanja i suradnje na osobnoj, umjetničkoj i organizacijskoj razini. Nevidljivipokušavaju učiniti vidljivima sve nevidljive procese koji se odgađaju iza i između performativnog materijala.
Je li moguće stvoriti proces u kojemu su u prvom planu ljudi, a ne kapital?
Proces koji gradi nove modele kooperacije?
Proces koji poštuje ljudske odnose, ne samo dijagrame profita?
Nataša: Umjetnost je sada samo “flaster” za jedan ogromni društveni vulkan. Pretvaramo se da umjetnost liječi. Ali, umjetnost je samo supstitut za potpuni manjak brige službenih institucija. Umjetnost je mnogo, ali nije dovoljno. Zato što umjetnost ne govori jezikom duboke kooperacije. Samo jezikom osobnog interesa i/ili globalnog tržišta.
Nerina pita: Što je suprotno od njegovateljice?
Deana: odgovara: Muškarac.
Selma odgovara: Pacijent.
Nataša odgovara: Vještica.
Institute for Catastrophe and Chaos
Interdisciplinary performance research
Date of perfomance: 27.02.2014. , Tala Dance Center
Co-production: Linkta, NDA, LLB, Stanica and TALA
The Life Long Burning network considers the co-productions of dance and performance pieces as an important tool to develop dialogue and exchange both between artists and between dance organisations on the European level. The artistic selection of the works is made during the annual co-organiser meetings. Dance Works! is ensuring European added value: only works involving artists from at least 3 different countries are liable to be funded. Co-productions are chosen from applications following a public call thus ensuring both the visibility of the network as well as the involvement of all European dance artists.
The coproduction activity is directly linked with the Prix Jardin d’Europe, as at least four Dance Works! pieces are among the 10-14 annually nominated works.
All Dance Works! creations are at display on the LLB website in full length to guarantee maximum exposure for the young artists. Dance Radar Europe supports the promotion of these creations amongst the European colleagues by involving social media structures ensuring strong links to multiplying sites regarding both the LLBwebpage and facebook page.
Institute for Catastrophe and Chaos is a collective of female artists in the fields of performance and performance studies, founded in 2011 in Zagreb.
Our interest is in the reality of social experience in a neo-liberal economy and the position of an artist within that, with the focus on the work of women. The format of our performative works mirror that reality.
Our new project The Invisibles – interdisciplinary performance research has two main starting points; a study by Gregory Sholette DARK MATTER: Activist Art and the Counter-Public Sphere and Silva Federici’s book Caliban and the Witch.

Our desire is to create collective work dedicated to developing a process of mutual trust and cooperation on personal levels, artistic inputs and production strategies. The Invisibles aims to make visible all the invisible processes, that happens beyond and between the performative material.
Is it possible to create a process that favors people over capital?
A process that builds new models of cooperation?
A process that respects human relations, not only the profit charts?
Natasa: Art is now just a ”band-aid” over a huge social volcano. We pretend that art heals. But art is in fact just a substitute for the total lack of care in official institutions. Art is plenty, but not enough. Because art still doesn’t speak the language of deep cooperation. Only the language of personal interest and/or the global market.
Nerina asks: What is the opposite of a nurse?
Deana answers: The man.
Selma answers: The patient.
Natasa answers: The witch.
