place: Cologne, Germany
organiser: Academy of Media Arts
Performing company BADco. will run a workshop “It’s life” at Academy of Media Arts in Cologne, Germany on 30 November and 1 December.

It’s life is an open workshop thematizing performance art in former Yugoslavia and temporality and spatiality of contemporary dance.

The workshop will be conducted by Tomislav Medak, Goran Sergej Pristaš and Nikolina Pristaš on invitation of Prof. Dr. Marie-Luise Angerer and Dr. Karin Harrasser.
BADco. is a collaborative performance collective based in Zagreb, Croatia. The artistic core of the collective are Pravdan Devlahović, Ivana Ivković, Ana Kreitmeyer, Tomislav Medak, Goran Sergej Pristaš, Nikolina Pristaš, Lovro Rumiha and Zrinka Užbinec.

As a combination of four choreographers / dancers, two dramaturgs and one philosopher, plus the company production manager, since its beginning (2000), BADco. systematically focuses on the research of protocols of performing, presenting and observing by structuring its projects around diverse formal and perceptual relations and contexts. Reconfiguring established relations between performance and audience, challenging perspectival givens and architectonics of performance, problematizing of communicational structures – all of that makes BADco. an internationally significant artistic phenomenon and one of the most differentiated performance experiences.
