Still Lives - Skopje

Dance project of Good Work Productions (Isabelle Schad/DE and Bruno Pocheron/FR), realized with the support of Goethe Institute-Skopje, Germany Weeks, Lokomotiva-Skopje and French Cultural Centre in Macedonia

’The choreographer Isabelle Schad (Germany) and the media artist Bruno Pocheron (France) together with Ivailo Dimitrov (Bulgaria) create a dance performance for and in Skopje with 30 non-professional dancers of all age groups. Interviews with citizens of Skopje and their requests for music form important elements of the choreography. Thus, “Still Lives” is a world premier in every new city it is performed in. “Still Lives” emerged from an idea by the Berlin artistic collective ‘Good Work’; it has been staged in numerous towns all over Europe. The project is the contribution of the “Germany Weeks” to the “Locomotion” Dance Festival.’
