The project

THE CALLING OF THE FOREST  or  YOUR MOTHER'S KISS is  a proposal for multimedia  show  with dance, video,objects and texte  about  a desire to return, a movement to itself , to the essential. Performance  will  be  donne in Slovenia  with the  participation  of French  and Slovenes  artists  with Opening Night on the 25. septembre in The  House of Culture "Cankarjev Dom", Ljubljana.


Inspirations  and  approach:


Choreographer and  contemporary dancer Etcha  Dvornik , original Slovenian, I live  and work in Paris, France.Between two cultures, two countries , the questions  of identity , of strangeness and  strange are in the hearth of my choreographycal work :which kind of body ?whick kind  of imaginations?because  it's

enough to look  another landscape, breath the  air  of elsewhere that perceptions  changents, the body change.Haunted by this "Other"  absent, desiring to questions the  "nature  and culture", "art and exile" the body and territory" ,to created  the new imaginary lands , I answered to "CALL FOR THE PROJECT" of   the  House  of  Culture "Cankarjev Dom" , Ljubljana...." plant a oak, watch it grow ,debit his boards , see dry and make a coffin in which will take  place in  the earth ,that is  in the cosmos " Michel Onfray, French philosophe, Le Recours aux forêts , La tentation de Démocrite, éd. Galilée

What  are we made of?What is the  matter of our bodies?Of our dreams?Our fantasies?
