Seven minutes: A seven-minute lecture at the Clear Thoughts II - the future of Slovenian contemporary dance, Cofestival, Ljubljana, 30 May 2012
The author skims through the development of dance from the Renaissance to today and explains the gradual emancipation of dance from natural movement, movement of gender and from the state. In the twentieth-century, called by the author the anti-century because of the many revolutionary leaps associated with it, modern art appears, which frees dance of the ideology of dance. Modern dance is founded on anti-movement and thus stands up to ballet, which is under the thumb of the state and grounded in discipline. The dancer is becoming an individualist, while the state has moved its control mechanisms to the television, with which it tries to shape the collective body by way of popular dance on MTV. After WW II, when the influences of American abstract dance start entering Europe, contact dance and conceptual dance appear to finally emancipate dance from music by turning away from ballet.
