Black and white performance is exploring constrast as a fundation of cultural, sociological, political, physical and methaphysicle coexistance of two polarityes. It is connecting two cultures which are, from their own point of view, exotic to each other. It rases awareness that our way of living is something new and different for people from other countries. Being exposed to different cultures, we refresh our way of living, as well as value our manners and costumes more than before. Through traditional dances, songs and physical teather accompanied by live music, two performers of different sex, race and culture (man and woman, black and white, african and european) are merging each others history in order to create harmonius habitat. Combining Croatian and African folklore with contemporary dance and music we are placing ourselves in our past, present and future.
