A big round of applause and thanks to the artists, our wonderful partners EN-KNAP Productions, our team and the guests for making the journey to Ljubljana to help us celebrate 25 years of Aerowaves. And a special mention to the fans who watched Be There with Springback Social, a series of video snippets to follow the jam-packed action of the festival, presented by Springback writer Beatrix Joyce.
Summer ReCollection gathered eleven Aerowaves Artists from the years 2020 and 2021 and presented their work live, we launched internationally the pioneering project Springback Ringside with three dance works in virtual reality, and invited the people in Ljubljana to dance tailor-made mini-choreographies by former and current Aerowaves artists at Cinderella’s Bal Moderne.
We also presented the print edition of Springback Magazine’s Annual with an ‘Aerowaves at 25’ supplement and a video installation that recollected a quarter of a century of dance across europe curated by Enya Belak. You can also read Springback Academy writers’ reviews of the works presented at the festival.
We will be marking our anniversary in various ways for the next 11 months, culminating with Spring Forward in Elefsina in May 2022. Stay tuned!
Eleven artists from the Twenty20 and Twenty21 selections presented their performances in Ljubljana: Alessandro Carboni with ‘The Angular Distance of a Celestial Body’, Viktor Černický with ‘PLI’, Tereza Lenerová with ‘Don’t Stop’, Masako Matsushita with ‘UN/DRESS | moving painting’, Anne-Mareike Hess with ‘Warrior’, Anastasia Valsamaki with ‘Body Monologue’, Alexandros Stavropoulos with ‘Cinderella’s’, Máté Mészáros with ‘Mechanics of Distance’, Moritz Ostruschnjak with ‘Tanzanweisungen (it won’t be like this forever)’, Emese Cuhorka & Csaba Molnár with ‘MASTERWORK’ and Poliana Lima with ‘Things Move but they do not say anything’.
