Betontanc & Umka.Lv

2012 Show your face!

Show Your Face is a multidisciplinary performance that combines music, dance, acting and puppetry. History proves that it is very easy to destroy a body, but on the other hand it brilliantly hides its methods of how to blow up the soul. Who are those people without faces, who were in the wrong place at the wrong time? People, whose every step and every sound was monitored by raving executors with the sole intent of blowing up their souls, so that the world could be so beautiful today and so useful for us bastards, who are still alive. This performance will be the final judgement for us all, because we allowed ourselves to forget.

The Betontanc collective was founded in 1990 by director Matjaž Pograjc, who gathered people of similar ages but different experiences and backgrounds who were connected by creative energy and their love for dance and theatre. Over the years, Betontanc has become one of the main sensations of the Slovenian dance theatre. Already in 1991, Betontanc was awarded as the most promising theatre troupe at the Borštnik Theatre festival. Matjaž Pograjc also won the Prešeren Award for his directorial achievements with Betontanc. More recent works from the collective are realised with international collaboration, such as the politically engaged Everybody for Berlusconi (2004), which premièred in the Netherlands, and was co-produced by Jonghollandia. Show Your Face (2006) was created by Betontanc and the Latvian artistic collective Umka.LV, and has been performed in Bremen, Palmela and Groningen as well as in 4 major US cities – New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles.

Umka.lv is a Latvian art group founded in 2004 when several young actors and puppeteers, who studied together, decided to create an art collective without any rules or creative limits.

“Show your face!” je multidisciplinarna predstava koja u sebi spaja glazbu, ples, glumu i lutkarstvo. Povijest nam neprestano pokazuje da je vrlo lako uništiti tijelo, ali s druge strane skriva od nas sve one savršene načine na koje se razara duša. Tko su ti ljudi bez lica koji su se našli na pogrešnom mjestu u pogrešno vrijeme? Ljudi, čiji je svaki pokret praćen od strane surovih egzekutora, koji za cilj imaju samo uništenje njihovih duša, kako bi ovaj naš svijet bio lijep i koristan, baš kakav je danas za sve nas bitange koji smo još živi. Ova predstava neće ubosti nekog s leđa. Ova predstava je sudnji dan za sve nas koji smo sebi dopustili da zaboravimo.

Kolektiv Betontanc osnovan je 1990. godine od strane redatelja Matjaža Pograjca, koji je okupio grupu vršnjaka različitih iskustava i pozadina, a koje je spajala kreativna energija i ljubav prema plesu i kazalištu. Tijekom godina, Betontanc je postao prava slovenska kazališno-plesna senzacija. Već 1991., Betontanc je nagrađen na festivalu u kazalištu Borštnik kao najperspektivnija slovenska kazališna skupina, dok je 1997., Matjaž Pograjc dobio nagradu Prešerenove zaklade za svoja redateljska ostvarenja unutar Betontanca. Noviji radovi kolektiva ostvaruju se i u međunarodnim suradnjama i prikazuju na međunarodnim turnejama, poput politički angažiranog Everybody for Berlusconi (2004) koji je premijerno izveden u Nizozemskoj, a ostvaren je u koprodukciji s Jonghollandiom. Show your face (2006) je stvoren od strane Betontanca i latvijskog umjetničkog kolektiva Umka.LV i izveden u Bremenu, Palmelu i Groningenu te u 4 velika američka grada – New Yorku, Chicagu, Minneapolisu i Los Angelesu.

Umka.lv je latvijska umjetnička skupina nastala tijekom 2004. godine, kada je nekoliko mladih glumaca i lutkara, koji su zajedno studirali, odlučilo studirati umjetnički kolektiv bez pravila i bez kreativnih limita.
