I am on my way to Novi Sad, Serbia, to attend the Balkan Platform of Dance 2009, a three days event that aims to "present the best selection of contemporary dance productions...made by established authors and emerging dance artists in previous two years in the Balkans."


More from their website: BDP 2009 will present the latest production of BADco (Croatia), Rosana Hribar & Gregor Luštek (Slovenia), Madalina Dan (Romania), Dragana Bulut, Gillie Kleiman & Lígia Soares (Serbia), Griffon dance co. (Greece), Kinesthetic Project (Bulgaria) and Aleksandar Georgiev (Macedonia). BDP 2009 will display the best achievements in artistic, conceptual and production senses as well as the specificities of artistic, cultural and material conditions and contexts of this moment in the Balkans." I am very excited to meet the artists and to have this exceptional opportunity to see their work. I am curious to see if the so called Balkanization have affected their work and process... I was able to interview artist/activist Sasa Ascentic and dramaturg/researcher Ana Vujanovic when they were in NYC in March this year presenting My Private Bio-politics.
