artists' lab

As hinted at already by the name, Artists' Lab promises the unexpected, the unpredictable. The lab is a common space of the festivals Performa and Platforma, which aim to present guest artists not only by showing their works but also by demonstrating concrete approaches and methods of their artistic practice. Together we will nurture our relation to the unknown: we will allow ourselves to address the incomprehensible, perhaps even the meaningless, but still perceptible and sensible as it is revealed to us through certain aspects of our being and artistic endeavours.

This year's format, that of a laboratory, has been chosen precisely because it readily allows for an exchange of specific creative approaches between individual artists. Each day, when a guest artist will share his practice, s/he will not do this in a mere technical sense, because the format itself will stimulate her/him to explore and share those surprising, perhaps strangely obsessive moments and impulses that ignite artistic creative fire that sweeps through the variety of working conditions and their limitations, and beyond.
The far most important element of this year' laboratory is the visitor. We wish her/him not to be a mere receiver of these sparks of passion, but to take on the crucial role of the participant and to respond to artists' proposals, bring in specific questions and practical examples, try out artistic procedures, approaches, and fascinations by way of short exercises and group processes, and to then reflect on them.

Artists' Lab is open to everyone, not only to the makers who are already developing their own work and wish to expand their methodologies. Local artists, not necessarily dance or performance artists, are especially welcome, since the format is intended to mutual interaction and communication between different disciplines. We hope to touch upon the unknown, perhaps mystified processes and areas and to retailor them in innovative ways into the new motors of our creative passion.

Lili Mihajlović Rampre comes from Slovenia, where she obtained her B.S. in physics. She was a recipient of the Nomad Dance Academy Scholarship and was granted a residency for choreographic research (ReRc) at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier as part of the programme WILD CARD. She was awarded first prize in Slovenia's national competition for young choreographers. In 2012 she completed her master's degree in contemporary dance education at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.
