A monument: a structure, a tangible structure, a lasting tangible structure as a reminder of a historical phenomenon, a fixation of a specific memory arising from the fear of loss of memory. It seems that to fixate is to confirm existence. But what if one is movement itself?


The kinaesthetic monument empowers Brina, as an antifascist and a dancer-choreographer, to rise not as a numb statue but as a spinning movement and echo in space. The emancipatory power of contemporary dance as it was performed by Brina: can it be a remedy against colonising our memories? A rebellious act?


Brina - a kinaesthetic monument is a collaborative project of Leja Jurišić, Bara Kolenc and the NO1 collective (Peter Kutin, Patrik Lechner, Mathias Lenz). Produced by Pekinpah; co-produced by Samosvoj; with the support of the Ministry of Culture of Slovenia.
