Emerging from the evocative exodus song Rondinella (written by Dario Marušić) spins the tales of love and loss, mystery and mysticism, comedy and commonplace, gently -- and with constrained nostalgia -- triggering memories and offering a glance at the past and the dear spaces and people we feel close to. 

Rondinella, a lyrical and eloquent site-specific work, created for five dancers with live musician and video projection, was originally created and performed in the village square of Svetvinčenat / San Vincenti (near Pula) in Istria, Croatia with a 16th century castle and church as its backdrop, revealing the beauty and power of renaissance spaces on everyday imagination and longing.

(At the) crossroads of Italian troubadour tradition and high-calibre contemporary dance.
Primož Jesenko, Delo, 31.08.2004 

Rondinella is a gentle, well-accomplished performance. Although it is short, it does not appear as a collection of ideas, but turns out to be well-conceived, precise, totally complete: bittersweet flash, as it comes up at small thoughts about almost forgotten things.
