"... a synonym for another world, another dimension, a world of fantasy and dreams ... manipulation of body and moving the clear intent or clearly given meaning, gives us an insight into the surreal, yet very close and intimate world on the border of sensory." , Rona Žulj, "I to nije sve"more
Luna Malekova is author project and solo by Martina Nevistić. Luna Malekova is also a character. We can say and alter ego, and certainly synonym for another world, another dimension, a world of imagination and the world of dreams.
Through dance performance and multimedia, project builds a platform of various fields of art, recreating a surreal world of Luna Malekova. The basic structure of building takes place on three levels, through the concept of "expanding space" - where we think of the body, time and space. The body - performance at given time and performance captured by video; time - in terms of extension of performance through the exhibition part, through the media of video and photography, or the elongation of the music also after the performance; space - in terms of multiple locations.
Appearing of duality is as a game with the world of visible and invisible, conceivable and obscure, regular and irregular, real and surreal, through the manipulation of the body, time and space which consistently follows the concept of "expansion space". It creates a view that produces associative and non-associative series.
Revisiting of duality within the performance transmits thoughts, energy, desire and emotion, showing the physical and spatial, with the aim of creating a continuous interrelationship with the viewer and his surrendering. It represents a creature that is telling stories, or perhaps it doesn’t. It is a creature that is present, and yet it is not, it is a body that dreams, sharing its awareness through improvisation qualities of own impulses that manifest spontaneity, directness, natural, simple, freely and unrestrained. Within the performance, and after, a various sounds create an atmosphere of surreal world. Duality within the medium of video and photography, through exhibition conjures the visual world. Reflections of different associativity from the performance, where the body is in action, within the exhibition that body is at rest, while the reflections are in motion or just a static view of surrealism.
Through the aesthetics of dance who is not in classical framework of theatrical presentation, manipulation of body and moving the clear intent or clearly given meaning, Martina Nevistić gives us insight into the surreal, yet very close and intimate world on the border of sensory.
Through this dance-multimedia project, in already recognizable style of Martina Nevistić / O.N.E. once again questions the relation between performer and spectator, meanings enrolled in the body and their perceptions on multiple plans.less
