Plenir is perfect in all segments, and at the same time inspiring. It was about time that we saw this 100-year history of Slovenia in a dance performance.
“Plenir” is a precious basket with which milkmaids and bakers used to go to Trieste to sell agricultural products. The central point of the creation of Daša Grgič's choreographic idea is the exceptional women from Slovenian coast, whose activities helped to survive in the difficult times of the past. They deserve attention, as they are an irreplaceable part of cultural heritage. Their stories and memories are the inspiration for a contemporary dance performance that interweaves movement, words and and concept.
