The second event in a series of talks on choreographic practices will be devoted to Irena Tomažin, an artist of a younger generation who has created an artistically distinguishable and unique opus. Her diverse creativity is usually summed up as „choreography of voice”, which, while being caught between tradition and performative present, perhaps fits best into what is described as the ephemeral nature of dance. The event is conceived as a „covoicing” talk, which is also the title of the latest book Irena has edited and  developed conceptually.
