Rondinella

Maja Delak,Mala Kline

Rondinella is a lyrical and mystic performance, inspired by musician Dario Marušić`s poem with the same title, a poem about the nostalgia for one`s home, landscape and the people one used to love and still does. Their second project as co-choreographers, dancers Maja Delak and Mala Kline collaborated on the concept with film director Mauricio Ferlin from Pula. Beside Marušić and Ferlinm they also invited young dancer Barbara Kanc, one of the first generation of graduates of Ljubljana`s high school for contemporary dance, planning to continue her studies at London`s Laban center; Jurij Konjar, graduated from Brussels` P.A.R.T.S.; and Italian Armando Schiffini, who studies in the Body Unlimited Program in Novi Sad. Ferlin`s visually perfected video, immerses the viewers` gazes and the images of the dancers. The performance is integrated into the environment and premiered at a renaissance square in Svetvinčenat close to Pula. What is nostalgia anyway? A memory? An image? Yearning? Love?
