The miniature dance piece #Red is a new creation by Ivona Grubišić. It is dedicated to all women and those who feel that way. Red is the colour of love and passion, and blood and fire, anger and danger... Inspired by the Platform for Reproductive Rights movement called #Red resistance, the show is not concerned with current political issues, but wants to embody a woman as gentle and uniform on the one extreme, and as a fighting, powerful and unmistakable being on the other.
Start: 23:00 h

Aliza comes from the Arabic word 'alizarin' denoting a red chemical compound, which is the symbol of the substance most important for living tissue - blood. It means passion, freedom, strength, love and life itself, in contrast to black, which is the symbol of death, both colours often appearing together on some countries’ flags. Aliza asks the question of what is happiness and analyses the process of reaching it.
