Starting tonight, choreographers from Croatia, Serbia and Slovenia will participate in the X-YU Festival, a first-ever festival of new dance from the former Yugoslav countries, at Dixon Place. The festival, a collaboration with Dixon Place, Wax Factory and Dance New Amsterdam, will present three U.S. premiers in rotating repertory through Saturday, May 29th. (You can see all three pieces on Saturday.) As noted in the New Yorker: The Slovene dancers Maja Delak and Luka Princic offer a violent, punk, and multimedia vision of love. From Croatia comes Matija Ferlin, pretending he’s a child still in a state prior to social conditioning as he lectures toy animals. The Serbian choreographer Dalija Acin plays with perception, slowly rearranging two purple-haired women on a mattress surrounded by darkness.
