Matej Kejžar (SI/BE)


The title, Spending Time Dancing, stands for Kejžar’s latest artistic experimentations with Dancing with the ambition to discharge it from the drive for choreography. In order to relieve dance from the burden of choreography as a carefully planned succession of movements as progress, Kejžar stands for the processes that defy the linearity of both movement and time.
