DENUDED was created during BRUNO ISAKOVIC and PAVLE HEIDLER’S artistic residencies in ART WORKSHOP LAZARETI in DUBROVNIK, through the PERFORATIONS program and the PERFORMING ARTS NETWORK. the idea of DENUDED is born from the framework set by the previous ISAKOVIC’S work Invocation, in which the performer with physical expressions and stage presence that goes far beyond the purely physical movement, reminiscents of the relationship between the secular and the spiritual. the performance DENUDED continues this research and deeply touches physical transformation, thus freeing them from the automatic attribution of meaning to what we at a given moment are able to see, recognize, experience.

DENUDED requestions the relationship with the audience through a feedback loop that causes a significant transformation of the artist’s body, and ISAKOVIC in this new version of his performance bypasses classical staging and sets his body in the middle of the auditorium, thus opening a new sculptural aspects of performance and capabilities of communication with the audience.

After playing in KOREA, JAPAN, the US and GREECE, DENUDED continues its international performance tour in the UNITED STATES in JULY, in NEW YORK, CHICAGO, WASHINGTON and SAN FRANCISCO, and, ANNOUNCING among others, the visit to BRAZIL in OCTOBER, and TOUR in AUSTRALIA in FEBRUARY and MARCH 2015.

BRUNO ISAKOVIC was born IN ZAGREB, and graduated in contemporary dance in AMSTERDAM. In ZAGREB he is a member of the STUDIO for CONTEMPORARY DANCE, collaborating with numerous choreographers, regular freelance choreographer and holds dance workshops.
