About

Leon Marič’s dance debut explores the author’s entanglement in the dichotomy between the urban club scene and rural customs and rituals. The starting point is the figure of the “Prekmurje pozvačin”, a summoner whose job it is to invite guests to a wedding on behalf of the bride and groom. The project emphasises the importance of respecting and preserving one's own cultural heritage while celebrating the freedom of individual expression. Rituals and performances are key elements of queer night culture as they allow people to express their identity, build communities and promote social acceptance of diversity.
