Vertigo Birds

The process of creating the newest Iztok Kovač’s production, this full-evening performance with EN-KNAP Group, was based on his early piece and film from the mid 90’s and on numerous discussions about our place in the society and our identity thus connecting us to the past, the present and the future like a hashtag unites information in the world of social media.
