Dance Inn is a mini-festival, or an international thematic event organized by de facto, a theatre company focused on contemporary performance art and live art.
​Dance Inn takes an innovative approach to understanding festivals taking place in Zagreb and Croatia. Essentially, it is a pop-up weekend festival that collaborates with various artists, art collectives, institutions and venues depending on the topic selected to provide an in-depth and horizontal overview of the cultural community during a very brief period of time.

With Double Portrait Isabelle Schad continues a series of works which attempt to create distinct and personal portraits through a purely physical approach, molding respective rhythms and energies into choreographed experiences.
Double Portrait– the portrait for Przemyslaw Kaminski and Nir Vidan – seeks to form a solo for two persons with their bodies, movements, and subjective rhythms. Each of them finds his prolongation in the other. In changing interdependencies, a shared space defines self and other, intimacy and care, colliding forces and violence, creating a web of connectivities. The work plays with aspects of Frances Bacon’s paintings, their complexity in visual rhythm, their intensity and immediacy. It raises matters around violence and sensuality, the role of temporality, the relation to oneself that expands into the other and into the world.
