BALKAN DANCE PROJECT                       VOL.2 


Wanting to find out who we are, where we are, why we are here, to have the urge to dive

into to the hidden part of ourselves and find the secret to share a moment of life

with unknown in an unexpected meeting, to speak words from the depths

of our hearts about our own pain, to find out what is behind our and others' words

We raise a wall to protect our feelings ... We, who have the courage to ask ... .

By choosing the poem Wreath of Sonnets by famous Slovenian poet France Prešeren, the authors of the piece were caught up by the universal ideas expressed with romantically but not sentimental verses. Throughout the whole wreath there is a rhythm of heart who is pulsating, the essential life. With this rhythm and with the poetry of dance, the choreographers have tried to express the poet's personality: Love as an eternal category, love to woman, love to life, love to fatherland and above all, love to freedom.
