MISLIM REKU  (I think of River)
Music Follows The Stranger's Walk
Site-specific study for a dance performance

An inner and an outer voice echoing along the urban sections of the river. Lines conceived in the intimacy of a poet's room. Stranger's gaze sliding across the water as he passes by. The river. A flow of images. A being to live with for a lifetime. A coagulum of our past and present bleeds. A substance that fuels the e-motions. A mental space overflowed with symbols in dreams. A bridge between the near bank and the far bank, familiar side and strange side, known front and unknown front.  Being both the riverbed and the river-flow. Looking at once from the bank and from the boat. Dancing the river's dangerous playfulness.


Based on fragments of the book " Miroslav Mandic " by Miroslav Mandic, and fragments from the text " The freedom bridge – out and about in Novi Sad " by Horst Widmer (Austria)
