Švic in Švarc (2002); Goran Bogdanovski
Silence is classical, therefore eternally beautiful. And even if it sucks blood, it does it in a beautiful manner. The sound, however, overwhelms the movement so that every muscle is heard, every trickle of sweat is seen and every feeling is smelled - even if that sound is the waving of philosophical discourse. In the end, the taste of the purifying power of salt that remains on sweated-out bodies is bitter, and the drops of clear water, scattered all over the dancescape, are sweet.
“Yesterday night in Cankarjev Dom, the Goran Bogdanovski quartet broke through the cultural sound barrier… Superimposing the most noble dance tradition and indicating a refined perception of existence, he created a multi-visual show, accompanied by spontaneous ovation.”

“It is obvious that these excellently trained bodies dance for the sake of pleasure alone, without an omnipresent story, and when (if) we accept that, we can witness a dance show which can make us laugh, relax and enjoy. The response of the audience proves that this show is a pure excess of pleasure and therefore a way to proffer contemporary dance to a contemporary consumer of culture.”
