(E) Croatian choreographer to debut in America

 

Irma Omerzo at the Doris Duke Studio Theatre in Becket, Massachusetts

From Croatia, Irma Omerzo brings “Mi-Nous,” an intimate dance duet of love and
renewal to the Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival at the Doris Duke Studio Theatre
in Becket, Massachusetts, August 7-10. Both shows are at 8:15 p.m.

“Mi-Nous” is a Croatian pet-name meaning "we-kittens." The work is about
relationships interrupted by distance and international boundaries and is
partly inspired by autobiographical events, from when Omerzo leftZagreb,
Croatia
to study modern dance in France, while her boyfriend stayed behind. The
two dancers in Mi-Nous present moments and vignettes of a relationship,
conveying a romantic story that is in turns touching, witty and altogether
familiar.

The Jacob’s Pillow Web site www.jacobspillow.org describes the piece: “Two
lovers drift together and come apart amidst an ambient, electronic soundscape.
Subtle movements give way to complex partnerings, telling the story of a
relationship in this touching and witty piece.

“Novi list” (Croatia) wrote, "Mi-Nous is a wisely choreographed, skillful,
[and] emotional...piece."

“Vijenac” (Croatia) calls it “an open-hearted piece which captivates by its
tenderness, subtlety, accomplishment and — artistic integrity"
