BADco., probably the most significant group of the contemporary Croatian performing arts scene, presents itself with a trilogy which consists of their latest performances that they carry out in unusual places. The trilogy thematises the links of work, utopia and confrontation with the impossibilities at a time of the threat of climate disasters.
Since its establishment in 2000 BADco., with a collaboration of three choreographers/dancers, two playwrights and a philosopher plus the group’s production manager, is systematically focusing 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, the problematising of communicational structures – all of that makes BADco. an internationally significant artistic phenomenon and one of the most differentiated performance experiences.
Their performances and installations have been performed at the most significant festivals and in institutions at home and abroad, such as Julidans in Amsterdam, in La MaMi and PS122 in New York, at the Tanz im August festival and in the Volksbühne theatre in Berlin, at the Vienna festival Tanzquartier and Steirischer Herbst in Graz and at the 54th Biennale di Venezia.
