Staying alive, the latest work of choreographer Jasna L. Vinovrski, reflects upon the issues of order and control in migration of human and non human entities. It questions how the juridical apparatus of the law, which today has a crucial role in the
control of the migration processes, has been affected and perpetuated by the production of knowledge and discourse around the subject of migration.
Throughout this process, the I pad as personal technological device, has had a very important role as an agent of control over the performers body. Gradually the body enters the sate of stress, which persists and increases throughout the whole piece.
Jasna L. Vinovrski is performer, choreographer, teacher and eternal student of life. She grew up in Zagreb, Croatia but lived and worked most of the time abroad. Today she works and lives in Berlin, where she runs together with choreographer Clément
Layes the company Public in privat. After (and during) working as performer for 12 years with various European
choreographers (Groupe Dunes, J. Schömer, C. Sagna, O. Duboc, etc.), she created her choreographic works that were presented at Holland dance festival in Den Haag, Rencontres-choreographic internationales de Seine Saint Denis and at the Artdanthé
festival in Paris, Tanzhaus Waserwerk Zürich in Switzerland, Tanec Praha festival in Czech Republic, Zagreb week festival in Croatia, Dansa Valencia in Spain etc.
