A friendly warning: you may see a head looking at its own ass from afar, tiny, flashing eyes with a dirty look, a stingy mouth that bites and make annoying sounds, one big belly, detached nails, a short dance for the imaginary cat and a kicking robot leg. In her graduation piece, former student of the MA program “Choreography and Performance” Zrinka Užbinec explores the chimeric and montage-like perception of the dancing body, embracing interruptions and glitches in the dance. The performance challenges the normative and linear narrative of the dancer’s body. It is an exploded machine, revealing a monstrous body, a body of many, a body in-between.
Zrinka Užbinec is a dancer and performer with interest in choreography. She is a member of performance collective BADco. from 2006., and has been one of the coordinators of Experimental Free Scene (ekscena), an independent organization established to promote contemporary dance and other forms of performing arts. Her work experience includes collaborations with many authors and groups, as well as co-authorships on several dance and performance related projects. Often giving classes in contemporary dance, she also holds workshops with other BADco. members in Croatia and abroad. She has finished an educational course at the Center for Women Studies in Zagreb, and is finalising her studies at MA Choreography and Performance at the Institute for Applied Theatre Studies, Gießen. She holds a degree from the Faculty of Economics, University of Zagreb.
